Our Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre (BMRC) carries out research into
- disease mechanisms
- molecular microbiology
- biochemistry and cell biology
- bioanalytical science
The BMRC has between 40 and 50 students on MPhil and PhD programmes, as well as a number of postdoctoral research assistants.
40% of staff were returned in REF 2013 2013. 53% of the outputs from our submission were considered as being world leading or internationally excellent while a further 43% were recognised internationally. In addition, staff are research active and publish in peer review journals in subjects which supports their teaching.
We have an established record of obtaining external funding from research councils and charities and often work in collaboration with UK and international scientists as well as clinical colleagues at a number of UK hospitals. Staff and postgraduate students present their research findings at national and international conferences.
