Our students are taught by world-class researchers and clinicians, with access to state-of-the-art research facilities.
Our research is designed to impact on society by progressing from fundamental science through to clinical trials and commercialisation.
We offer a stimulating and challenging learning environment across a range of programmes.
The mission of our school is both to teach students how to become successful scientists and to undertake world class research focused on turning science into medicine, specialising in cancer biology, infection and immunity and regenerative medicine/stem cell biology. This alignment allows us to deliver research programmes that are underpinned by an in depth knowledge of the field.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my course. I feel that my third year has taught me how to be a scientist, rather than just teaching me science.
