Genomics plc

Genomics plc was formed in 2014 by four leading scientists at the University of Oxford, including Professor Sir Peter Donnelly (then Director of the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics) and Professor Gil McVean (then Director of Oxford’s Big Data Institute). Its vision is to use genomic insights to transform drug discovery and precision health. Genomics plc has developed the most powerful engine of its kind in the world linking genetic variation to changes in thousands of human measurements and disease outcomes, together with its own breakthrough machine learning algorithms that use this data at scale to learn directly about human biology. Genomics exploits its core technology and world-leading analytical expertise in two synergistic directions. In drug development, it uses powerful genetic approaches to find novel drug targets and identify the patient groups who will most benefit from them. In precision health, the company is pioneering genomic prevention, the use of genome-wide genetic approaches to understand an individual’s risk for common diseases, deploying these tools in healthcare to change the paradigm to a “prevention first” model. Backed by some of the leading investors in life sciences, Genomics has an expert cross-disciplinary team of 70 people, primarily scientists and software engineers, with offices in Oxford and Cambridge UK. *
