About our research
Our University Research and Innovation strategy and our Faculty Research and Innovation Strategy 2022-25 (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.
We are committed to fostering an open research culture. In these case studies, researchers from our Faculty explain how they have used open and transparent practices to carry out and communicate their research, and explore the benefits and challenges of being open.
Dr Simon Archer, Lecturer in Veterinary Clinical Research, describes how open research principles related to research pre-registration have been included in the learning and teaching of clinical research methods at undergraduate level.
Dr Arnoud van Vliet, Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Microbiology, has been addressing some of the issues scientists encounter when completing genomics data analyses.
Dr Katriina Whitaker, Reader in Cancer Care, and her team of researchers have been embracing the principles of open research, with a focus on the creation, storage and dissemination of research, as well as its preservation for further impact.
