The excellence of our pharmaceutical science and health related research is recognised internationally. It spans the complete continuum from basic to applied translational science and clinical practice.

We have a diverse research portfolio and a range of research facilities. Research interests embrace themes developed across three disciplines.

The applied and multidisciplinary nature of our work benefits from worldwide scientific collaborations and strategic relationships with global businesses and public sector bodies that enable us to see the real-world impact of our research. We work alongside an active Lay Faculty who contribute to the support and future direction of our research.

We have innovative and internationally acclaimed research teams. Our activities involve more than a hundred academic staff, research associates and research students.

The school's external research awards of some £3m per annum are secured through partnerships with a diverse range of funding bodies.

Our two research themes represent operational units providing platform knowledge and technical resource support.

We work with industry, education, government and public groups to ensure our research has impact in the real world and benefits human health and welfare.

Our specialised research is carried out by inter-disciplinary groups, centres and initiatives.
