The focus of the MRC-funded research will be to link up electronic health records from people who have already agreed to use of their data for research, with high volume molecular data, such as genome sequences. Careful analysis of these data sets in a secure environment can benefit patients by uncovering the underlying molecular mechanisms of disease, suggest new diagnostic and prognostic tests, help identify therapeutic targets, and monitor how effective medicines are.

Again, this research will be subject to stringent safeguards in relation to patient confidentiality and data protection and will operate to the highest ethical standards.

Professor Jeremy Wyatt, Professor of Health Informatics at the University of Leeds, said: "As well as the obvious boost to medical bioinformatics research in Leeds, the coincidence of both ESRC and MRC funding for research around consumer behaviour, health and genomics opens up unprecedented opportunities to understand the impact o
