Leading edge healthcare and medicine research

Welcome to our healthcare and medicine research case studies

Much of our research is organised through a number of proactive, interdisciplinary research centres. The Network for Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Prevention (NAMRIP) works to combat the increasing resistance that microbes display to countermeasures like antibiotics. Our Human Factors Research Unit (HFRU) conducts research related to human responses to vibration and our Hearing and Balance Centre (HABC) works to improve the quality of life of patients with hearing and/or balance disorders.

Healthcare systems around the world are facing unprecedented challenges. Our experts are researching biomechanics, prostheses & orthotics, microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip, regenerative medicine, medical imaging, tissue health and sensing to try and tackle the very real world healthcare issues that we face.
