Project Progress

The INDIGO project will run for 48 months and started in May 2014 so will end in April 2018. The first part of the study involves collecting samples from patients, in vivo and in vitro models. These will then be assayed using a variety of ‘omics approaches. Finally the project will recruit a bioinformatician/biostatistician for 12 months to analyse the results and identify meaningful correlations.
