Research

Our world-leading research delivers improvements to the health and wellbeing of society.

Our research mirrors the research groupings across the College of Biomedical Life Science and is split into three distinct themes:

  • Tissue engineering and reparative dentistry
  • Applied clinical research and public health
  • Learning and scholarship

We have various centres and groups which carry out specialised research, including the Violence and Society Research Group, which won the Queen's Anniversary Prize in 2010 for its research on violent crime.

Our projects are funded by a variety of sponsors, including the Welsh Government, Arthritis UK, the Medical Research Council and the Royal Society. The projects have real impact, from developing ways to overcome drug resistance to providing a benchmark for those planning and implementing dental services for children.

Our staff and students have access to many facilities, including microscopes, a phosphorimager and a spectrometer.
