World-leading research

The School of Medicine has active research teams in each major clinical specialty, supported by investment in world-class laboratory and clinical facilities and strong links with industry.

Over 80% of our research was judged to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.



Webinar for National Eczema Week - October 2017 - hosted by Professor Hywel Williams and Sandra Lawton at the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, University of Nottingham.


Our research activity has impact in three major areas:

  1. Translational research bridges key gaps between invention, evaluation and adoption, driving significant changes in medical practice and clinical guidelines.
  2. Our ambitious patient engagement programmes link researchers with patients and the public from early research stages identifying important questions to advanced stages of adoption of research findings.
  3. Our commercial collaborations are accelerating the pace of drug and treatment development. We are working with firms in the UK and internationally, creating successful spin-out companies and transforming intellectual property into valuable innovations.
