Medicine is a thriving and ambitious multidisciplinary faculty - a national leader in medical education, with an outstanding reputation for our combined expertise in research and teaching.

Having celebrated over 40 years of medicine at the University, we have trained thousands of doctors and scientists, and have led cutting edge research in areas as diverse as cancer, osteoporosis, asthma and nutrition. We lead innovative learning and discovery across the lifecourse from before birth to the elderly, by investing in multi-disciplinary research teams, creative educational programmes and initiating external partnerships and collaborations.

The cure for cancer?
You're it

Immunology is saving lives. Our ground breaking research using the body's immune system to eradicate cancer is so powerful it can last a lifetime. A lifetime that can be so much longer. But revolutionary research needs revolutionary facilities. We need to raise £25 million to open a state-of-the-art Centre of Cancer Immunology in 2017.

You can be part of the cure.
