The Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre (BMRC) has an international reputation for the quality of its research. Our staff collaborate with other researchers locally, nationally and internationally.
We work to advance the understanding of biological processes and systems, in particular disease processes. We are internationally renowned for the quality of our research.
The Centre has a designated commercial unit with strong industrial links, providing a range of services in bioanalysis and custom synthesis. Our research skills are utilised by local SMEs, national and international companies who access our expertise and facilities in co-development partnerships and contract research projects.
We also offer PhD research programs and a professional doctorate in biomolecular science.
The Research Centre holds an Athena SWAN Silver award. We first achieved this award in 2012, and it was renewed for a further three years in November 2015. The award celebrates our best practice in areas such as recruitment, retention, career progression and work environment, as part of our commitment to addressing gender inequality in higher education.
Drawing on talents, expertise and facilities from across the university, the vision is to be the leading provider of applied research excellence delivering materials, computing, science and engineering innovations meeting the development needs of industry.
