Innovative research Leading the way
Research led by World-renowned scientists


In the 2014 REF, 75% of the Faculty's research was rated as either internationally recognised or world class. 94% of our research was deemed 3 or 4* for impact.

The Faculty of Medicine has taken a leading role in delivering the University’s multi-disciplinary research strategy. Our guiding principles have been to enhance our capacity for translational research and to increase interdisciplinary research at the interface with the physical sciences, computing, engineering and mathematics – especially in areas where the University is world-leading.
