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.
We are a vibrant and ambitious medical faculty with an outstanding reputation for our combined expertise in research,enterprise and education.
We have a thriving and diverse international community, welcoming thousands of EU and international students.
Medicine at the University of Southampton is spear-headed into five Academic Units that bring together a critical mass of staff in cognate disciplines.
Innovation and enterprise run through everything we do. The rewards are three-fold: better health and wellbeing of the population; entrepreneurial development; and wealth creation for industry and the university.
The cure for cancer?
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.
