Professor Andrew Morris is the Chair of the UCLPartners Informatics Programme Board. His role works closely with the board to support the development of a strong clinical informatics platform, enabling data sharing to support population health improvement. Andrew’s role at UCLPartners builds upon existing collaborations with the advances in informatics and personalised medicine driven already at pace in Scotland, and through the Farr Institute across the UK.

Andrew is Professor of Medicine, Director of the Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics and Vice Principal of Data Science at the University of Edinburgh, having taken up position in August 2014. Prior to this Andrew was Dean of Medicine at the University of Dundee. He is Chief Scientist for Scotland and Head of the Farr Institute. Andrew’s research team uses informatics to study the epidemiological and molecular aetiological basis of diabetes and its complications. He also has a major interest in the use of informatics to support research quality improvement and inter-disciplinary patient care nationally.

“UCLPartners knows that informatics is vital not only for the improvement of clinical services but also first-rate research. By collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, we are able to share best practice and drive excellent research through our partners and beyond.”
