We are making a significant contribution to advancing our understanding of biological processes and systems – in particular disease processes – leading to the identification of new therapeutic targets.
Our research is divided into four areas, each led by a senior academic researcher.
- disease mechanisms – led by Professor Nicola Woodroofe
- bioanalytical science – led by Professor Malcolm Clench
- biochemistry – led by Dr Ben Abell
- molecular microbiology – led by Professor Tom Smith
With a high level of experience and an impressive list of publications covering a broad range of areas, our research is also enhanced by several interdisciplinary projects including
- Innovation Futures
- The Imagine Project
We also collaborate successfully with a large number of other academic institutions and industrial organisations.
We have an excellent record of external income generation, with funding sources including
