Research in the School of Medicine
Research in the School is focused on interdisciplinary themes. Each of these spans the spectrum from laboratory investigation to clinical practice, in hospital and community settings.
Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements.
The School's research Institutes embody this philosophy. Their results are an indicator of its success.
Research networks & interest groups
The School offers research degree opportunities in fields across the spectrum of medicine and medicine-related disciplines.
