Exemplar studies

Following it’s launch in April 2018, DiTA is already working with a number of industry collaborators ranging from small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to multi-national diagnostic companies.

In June 2018, DiTA was pleased to announce the launch of three exemplar studies, which we believe have excellent potential to achieve the rapid clinical implementation of new technologies in practice.


Our collaboration with GeneDrive involves the clinical evaluation of a novel point of care pharmacogenetics test, which could be used to prevent avoidable permanent hearing loss in critically ill newborn babies. The project, which is receiving funding from the NIHR Invention for Innovation fund, is led by Professor Bill Newman, Professor of Translational Genomics.
