An integrated structure
A truly translational approach to life sciences research.
Our structure helps ensure smooth research pathways - from pure discovery science through to clinical application and patient care.
The integration of discovery biology, clinical application and patient care within a single Faculty, particularly in a region with notable health inequality, provides us with a real opportunity to have a very significant and positive impact on people's lives.
