The areas of interest and our cross-cutting capabilities

Our Aims

  • Create a clear visible focus for BME research undertaken in the SoE linking existing strengths within the SoE;
  • Create a base for BME current and future research taking place with clinical and industrial partners, aligning with the University‚Äôs GRP for Health;
  • Forge new external collaborations with regional, national and international partners across the varied areas of research within the field of BME;
  • Create a base from whence to apply for strategic funding to National Research Councils as well as EU funding and beyond;
  • Create a base from whence to apply for future Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) in BME, as well as the potential for apprenticeships at the postgraduate level.
