Who we are

At the heart of our operations is an interdisciplinary team with members located across multiple institutions in the UK, Africa and Southeast Asia—primarily Oxford University, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, and the MRC and Wellcome Trust overseas units. This core team acts a hub supporting our wider network of collaborators and data-sharing initiatives with active projects in more than 20 countries.

This diverse community brings together individuals with expertise from several fields including genomics, statistics, epidemiology, software engineering, ethics, programme management and communications. By sharing experiences and knowledge, they are transforming our understanding of infectious diseases and accelerating the development of much-needed genomic surveillance tools.
