Cell freezing (cryopreservation) – which is essential in cell transfusions as well as basic biomedical research – can be dramatically improved using a new polymeric cryoprotectant, discovered by researchers at WMS and the Department of Chemistry.
Research Fellow Gabrielle Larocque has been awarded the WMS Thesis Prize by the University of Warwick’s Faculty of Science, Engineering and Medicine in recognition of her cancer research.
WMS researchers have discovered how cells in our immune system play a role in stimulating the growth and activity of nerve cells in the condition, leading to increased sensitivity to pain in the pelvic region.
Two proteins that act as a ‘clutch’ in cells to put them in gear and drive our immune response have been identified for the first time by a team including researchers from Warwick Medical School.
A woman from Kenilworth who suffered 13 miscarriages gave birth to a girl after pioneering work by Warwick Medical School's Professor Siobhan Quenby.
Professor Siobhan Quenby and Professor Jan Brosens from WMS have been recognised for their exceptional contribution to keeping the nation healthy.
Congratulations to Dr Zehra Irshad, who has been awarded the inaugural Faculty Post-Doctoral Research Prize for her work on ‘Hepatic VLDL secretion: DGAT1 determines particle size but not particle number, which can be supported entirely by DGAT2'.
Professor Matthew Gibson awarded Royal Society Industrial Fellowship
Professor Matthew Gibson (Joint appointee between Warwick Medical School and Chemistry Department) has been awarded a Royal Society Industrial Fellowship to work with his industrial Partners, GE Healthcare. These prestigious fellowships give academics the time to work with an industrial partner to transfer knowledge and technologies. In particular, this Fellowship will enable Professor Gibson to move his research into biomaterials to help cryopreserve (freeze) donor cells and tissue, from the lab to real world applications.
Master's by Research (Medical Sciences): Projects available in cell and developmental biology
Warwick Medical School’s MSc by Research (Medical Sciences) degree gives you the opportunity to address significant and exciting questions within the field of cell and developmental biology. This is a one-year full time research degree during which you will be able to undertake a project which matches your research interests and career objectives. This program will act as a stepping stone to a career in research in academia or industry.

MSci Integrated Science
We're excited to have launched a new undergraduate course for 2020 entry, MSci Integrated Science, incorporating principles from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computing. Find out more about it.
Congratulations to Professor Mark Achtman, who has been announced as the winner of the highly-esteemed Pettenkofer Prize 2018 for his lifetime work on evolution of bacterial pathogens and their association with humans.
Scientists at the University of Warwick have created a new way to view proteins that are inside human cells.
Around 50 members of the public joined staff and students from our Division of Biomedical Sciences on 1 May to learn ‘how to build a human’.
Researchers at Warwick Medical School and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust have discovered the role that natural killer cells play in preparing the womb for pregnancy.
