Analytically minded people with unique skillsets.

XDF training resources

Tutorials, books, courses and other educational resources.

IGMM lecture theatre

Scientific events, social meetups, projects, publications and more.

XDF Directors

The programme will be led by a board of Directors who will provide Fellows with diverse perspectives.

Cross Disciplinary Fellowships advice

Frequently asked questions and other useful information.

IGMM building skyline

Interdisciplinarity and innovation lies at the heart of the University.

Cross-disciplinary research environment

Systems biology must be embedded in a cross-disciplinary environment with biologists, chemists, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and physicians. Our fundamental mantra is that leading-edge systems biology should drive the development of relevant technologies, and these, in turn, should push the creation of the necessary computational tools for handling the relevant data (often big data). These approaches have transformed our understanding of biological complexity.
