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 Research and Innovation Strategy is 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 four Schools, the School of Biosciences and Medicine, School of Health Sciences, School of Psychology and School of Veterinary Medicine, all work together as part of a 'One Health' vision, to provide interdisciplinary research, innovation and teaching in human and animal health. We generate new knowledge through our research and apply it to the design, development and delivery of societal benefit.
