Centre for Respiratory Science
Southampton Centre for Biomedical Research
The Southampton Centre for Biomedical Research (SCBR) lies at the core of our clinical and biomedical research partnership with University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
This body coordinates the people and resources of our major clinical research facilities, units and centres which are supported by £27m of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded infrastructure which includes the following:
- NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre in nutrition
- NIHR Southampton Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit
- NIHR/Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility
- NIHR/Cancer Research UK Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre
- NIHR/Cancer Research UK University of Southampton Clinical Trials Unit
- Shadow Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research unit
- Shadow Cardiovascular Biomedical Research unit
The SCBR enables Southampton to be much greater than the sum of its components, so that researchers work faster and more efficiently. Quality assured nursing, specialist laboratories, clinical governance and facilities mean a wide range of health issues can be efficiently investigated, with confidence.

The Centre for Global Health, Population, Poverty & Policy (GHP3) brings together social scientists from across a range of disciplines, to carry out research investigating the interrelationships between health, population and poverty at both the societal and individual level.
The ESRC Centre for Population Change aims to improve understanding of the key drivers and implications of population change within the UK. The Centre is a joint initiative between the University of Southampton and a consortium of Scottish Universities in partnership with the Office for National Statistics and the General Registrar Office in Scotland, and is directed by Professor Jane Falkingham (University of Southampton)
The Third Sector Research Centre exists to develop the evidence base on, for and with the third sector in the UK. Working closely with practitioners, policy-makers and other academics, TSRC is undertaking and reviewing research, and making this research widely available.
