Since the completion of The Human Genome Project (HGP), medicine, biology and life sciences in general were transformed into integrative big science approaches to decipher the complexity of human and animal molecular processes in health and diseases. In fact, the HGP was the largest megaproject in biology in the last century marked by unprecedented collaborative approaches driven mainly by strategic planning, technology development, mutual trust, ethics and responsible data sharing. It also laid the foundation for several international collaborative and multidisciplinary initiatives to date. The project showed the necessity of integrated, cross-disciplinary efforts and the use of advanced technological platforms in well-tailored experimental design.

With the development of novel technologies and analytical tools, advanced life science projects and independent scientific research are invariably subject to rigorous evaluation that requires careful experimental planning and design. If you don't spend time thinking and planning your experiment including the type of observations, the treatments, the number of biosamples/biospecimens, the objectives and the expected outcomes, you might fail to carry out experiments that can provide you with data but will be poor science and a waste of your time and money!

That’s why the GenaTi Experimental Design & Expert Advice Service (GEDEAS) is offered as the first multidisciplinary committee of scientific consultation and expert advice in the region to help and serve you with planning, designing and drafting your experimental hypothesis-driven proposal/project!

To whom the GEDEAS services are offered?

The GEDEAS is a committee of experts covering most areas of biomedical and life science research with internationally renowned expertise and high peer-reviewed publication records. It offers personalized consultation services through comprehensive discussion about the project/idea hypothesis and its feasibility according to the available biospecimens, tools, time-scale and available budget. Our services are mainly dedicated to serve the vast majority of students, biotechnologists, healthcare researchers, clinicians, university and industry scientists, public health investigators as well as policy makers.

Consultation Services offered:

The GEDEAS consultation services will be initiated immediately following a service request submitted from the applicant. It includes a wide range of procedures covering tips, resources and tools for informative experimental designs. It will help the applicant familiarize himself/herself with the general principles of experimental design and the exploration of the most relevant topics to the targeted field(s) to produce a comprehensive experimental design to generate meaningful data/results upon proper execution of experiments. Although the GEDEAS consultation services are customized according to both applicant and project requirements, the following non-exclusive types of services can be offered:

  Discussions and planning of hypothesis-driven ideas
  Experimental design
  Technical support and revision of experimental workflow
  Recommendations about biospecimens collections and management following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to preserve biosamples quality, an essential pre-requisite for reliable data.
  Project budgeting, technical platforms selection and time scale advice.
  Accurately and clearly define your variables and sample size
  Identifying the type of experiment you are running, making sure that appropriate controls are used.
  Advice about prerequisite technical optimization and validation
  Ensure that the experiment design allowed suitable, effective and informative data analysis.
  Advice about ethical rules, practices and consents
  Support with preparation and submission of bioethics Institutional Review Board (IRB) application.
  Any specific on-demand consultation services not listed above will also be offered
