How to Apply
About Our Organization

Genomics plc is leveraging recent advances in genomics and precision medicine to improve patient lives and advance healthcare. We were 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). Our vision is to use genomic insights to transform drug discovery and precision health.


We have developed the data resources, algorithms and platforms to link genetic variation to changes in thousands of human measurements and disease outcomes, generating the most powerful engine of its kind internationally. We use breakthrough machine learning algorithms, powered by this engine, to learn about human biology; to understand an individual’s risk for common diseases, and deploy these tools in healthcare to change the paradigm to a “prevention first” model. We are working with the NHS and healthcare systems in the USA and globally.  As one example, Genomics plc will be providing polygenic risk scores for 5M NHS patients in the Healthy Lives cohort. 


Genomics plc is backed by some of the leading investors in life sciences and, in 2018, closed an oversubscribed £33 million financing round (Series B), led by Vertex Pharmaceuticals. We have an expert cross-disciplinary team of 70 people, primarily scientists and software engineers, with offices in Oxford and Cambridge, UK, and Boston, US. We are now at an inflection point, with substantial growth in our commercial operations and operational infrastructure over the coming year.
