Research strategy

Our overall objective was to maintain our position as the leading research intensive Health Sciences programme in the UK.

This was achieved in our REF 2014 result, ranking us joint 1st for impact - this was a tremendous achievement as this unit of assessment included submissions from biomedical science, pharmacy and dentistry which are not represented in our programme. In addition, 94% of our research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent, cementing us a leading programme for Health Sciences.

Our healthcare researchers find evidence based solutions to some of today's most pressing health problems and our impact is proven to fundamentally improve patient experience and drive NHS policy. It is our ambition to grow our research base across disciplines, to continue to produce world-leading research and change healthcare for the better.
