With outstanding expertise, techniques and facilities at our fingertips, WMS has a reputation for research excellence. Our researchers investigate solutions to global health challenges. WMS research is configured into three divisions; Biomedical Sciences (BMS, Health Sciences (HS) and Clinical Trials (CTU).

Biomedical Sciences

Major human diseases including cancer, inflammation, neuro-degeneration and bacterial and viral infections are primarily diseases of cells.

Our Biomedical Sciences division focuses on understanding at a molecular level what happens to these cells. This work is essential for developing effective therapeutic treatments.


Clinical Trials Unit

The Warwick Clinical Trials Unit (WCTU) has a strong track record in delivering excellent research and specialises in the development and delivery of large multicentre clinical trials. The teams' comprehensive trials portfolio covers cancer; emergency and critical care; fraility; mental health; musculoskeletal disorders and pain; trauma and orthopaedics; and clinical trial methodology research.


Health Sciences

Home to a range of academics, the Health Sciences division analyses social, psychological, organisational and bio-medical issues.

Our research focus is on designing and evaluating behavioural, medical, technological and organisational interventions. The aim is to improve clinical practice and ultimately health outcomes.

Research Programmes

The Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme (QBP) aims to build world-class research centres, nucleated in WMS and the School of Life Sciences.

Research integrity

‘Research integrity’ refers to high quality and robust practice across the full research process, ie the planning and conduct of research, the recording and reporting of results, and the dissemination, application and exploitation of findings. The University of Warwick expects the highest standards in the conduct of all research undertaken in its name and on its premises using its facilities and you can find out more about our policies, codes of practice and more here.
