Funding for the work comes from research councils, charities, local government, health authorities and the private sector.
Our research is organized around research centres and groups that span across the Departments and Sections, drawing on a number of innovative collaborations. We also work across disciplines with other departments in the university, focusing on the university grand challenges and themes.
Our Research Culture
We have an active research culture with weekly external speaker seminars in term time open to all.
Each Research Group also has regular lab meetings and there are school research thinking meetings to develop new ideas.
We have a thriving PGR community with an annual PhD student research conference attended by staff and students, which gives PGR students experience of presenting and debating in a supportive environment.
