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.


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.
