Matthew Ritchie-Lab team

Matthew Ritchie-Lab team


My team collaborates closely with the Blewitt, Sutherland, Coussens and Smyth laboratories at the Institute. We use and develop advanced computational algorithms to analyse genome-wide data.
We welcome enquiries from individuals with a computational background (statistics, mathematics, computer science) interested in applying their skills to medical research.
