The University of Southampton

Expert Services

Real-world problems typically require solutions from across a wide range of disciplines. That is why our researchers and academics work closely with external organisations and with colleagues across the University, especially in areas such as chemistry and engineering, to ensure our work draws on the latest thinking and knowledge.

The Faculty of Medicine leads innovative learning and discovery for better health across the lifecourse - this is further enabled through our close interaction and integration with the University's recently developed £50 million Institute for Life Sciences (IfLS). The Institute enables integration of biological chemistry, micro and nano devices, bioengineering, computational modelling, signal processing and bioinformatics with our translational pathway and programmes in Medicine, providing a unique opportunity to drive learning and discovery in the Life Sciences and biomedicine.


Medicine is experienced at commercialising leadingedge medical research and is proud of its commercial acumen and strong links with enterprise. Our experience in translating innovative ideas and technologies into commercial success is second to none and our experts are available to help you make the most of your commercial ventures.


If your company requires skills and knowledge in leading technology and applied research, we can provide dedicated and professional teams to work on consultancy projects. We also have a wide range of highly experienced academics who can be involved in short or long-term projects.
