Our mission is to sustainably improve the health and wellbeing of humans and animals, and their environments through new knowledge and its application to the design, development and delivery of responsible innovation and impact.
About our research
Our University Research and Innovation strategy and our Faculty Research and Innovation Strategy (PDF) are underpinned by an understanding of the importance of collaboration and co-creation — with colleagues and with those individuals, groups and organisations beyond our Faculty and University who have an interest in our work, and with those who have an interest in their work. We use these interactions to shape what research we do, as well as how it is conducted, disseminated and used; through such knowledge exchange and stakeholder involvement we will foster innovation for the widest possible benefit. Indeed, it is the varied disciplinary knowledge, personal and professional networks, and life experiences and skills of our research and innovation community that will enable us to achieve our mission.
Our expertise includes the following areas of research.
One Health, One Medicine
We understand that human health is closely linked to animals, plants and our shared environment. To improve our health and that of animals, we’ve implemented a ‘One Health, One Medicine’ approach, bringing together expertise from a broad range of multidisciplinary areas.
Impact in conversation
Our researchers share their latest discoveries and how they’re having a positive impact on society.
We are working alongside the other faculties on various areas of research.
Focusing on research and innovation to address the challenges faced by urban areas and to help them realise visions for future urban living.
Interdisciplinary research across the spectrum, from discovery science to population-based studies of health, wellbeing and care in both humans and animals.
Enabling society to undertake activities and developments, such that they meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
