Our portfolio of multidisciplinary research is focussed on understanding and developing treatments for some of the most complex and challenging diseases of our time.

Our research is divided into five research areas and a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT).

REF Results 2021

An excellent result that places the University equal 4th in the Unit of Assessment for both GPA and the percentage of this that is judged as ‘world-leading’. Being a joint return with colleagues in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, direct comparisons to the school’s REF2014 return are very difficult, but the results show a demonstrable increase in the percentage of both ‘internationally excellent’ and ‘world-leading’ outputs, and a significant increase in those assessed as ‘world-leading’. The excellent research environment is confirmed as being 100% ‘world-leading’.
