"At the heart of our university lies the imperative to search for answers to the world’s most complex questions, and to share the knowledge we gain to build a better world for everyone. We believe it’s up to us to continue pointing the way ahead: to be bold in exploring, creating, curating, sharing and applying new knowledge in the world.

The excellence and originality of our work, and dedication of our researchers, is what defines us, and we’re proud of what we collectively achieve. Our research is made possible by the brilliance of our PhD students, researchers, technicians, and academics– the foundation of our research community.

Whilst the future can feel uncertain, the excellent research undertaken at Warwick enables us all to see clearly over the horizon."

Professor Caroline Meyer, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research).
