OUR SCIENTISTS ARE TACKLING SOME OF THE WORLD'S MOST IMPORTANT HEALTHCARE CHALLENGES
Our clinical and basic science researchers concentrate on the prevention and treatment of conditions linked to circulatory system, heart, nervous system and inherited genetic disorders. Our research develops new diagnostic and therapeutic solutions whilst learning more about biological processes involved in human disease.
We are developing a better understanding of pathogen biology and human immune responses to enhance diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious disease and conditions linked to immune system function. Our research develops new drugs, vaccines and optimal therapeutic regimes.
Our population health researchers use routine health statistics, together with results from health surveys and controlled trials, to measure the burden of disease in communities, to explore causes of ill-health and to inform policies for prevention.
