Our researchers are driven by a desire to create better treatments and diagnostics for their patients, specialising in world-leading patient-focused translational research. We've conducted many clinical trials, including being a leading centre for the COVID vaccine trials.
We work with both commercial and non-commercial partners to stay at the forefront of research, and many of our researchers work in the NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre. Insights gained from our work are now underpinning novel treatments, gene therapies and stem cell research.
Our work focuses on 5 main areas, each with their own specific research and educational aims:
- infection and immunology
- allergy and respiratory
- clinical neurosciences
- integrative physiology
We work across the faculties to deliver interdisciplinary projects, bringing new technologies and methods to our patient-centred work.
