Research

Supported by a wide range of funders such as the Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust and the NHS, faculty researchers have been at the forefront of many treatments, discoveries and healthcare programmes which are now in use around the globe.

With exceptional results in dentistry, health services, epidemiology, primary care, neuroscience and cardiovascular medicine, our world-leading research was recognised in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise which ranked the faculty in the top ten nationally across many clinical and population health sciences.

We offer many taught and research postgraduate opportunities, allowing postgraduate students to work alongside world-leading researchers and experts in their fields.

School of Clinical Sciences

Our research delivers pioneering treatments for patients and ground-breaking discoveries in basic science across a wide range of clinical fields such as neuroscience and endocrinology, cardiovascular sciences, musculoskeletal conditions and infection and immunity.

School of Oral and Dental Sciences

Our internationally-recognised research connects scientific research with clinical dentistry.

We provide superb facilities for students and staff that include outstanding research and teaching laboratories, well-equipped clinical rooms and quiet space for independent study.

School of Social and Community Medicine

Our clinical and research scientists collaborate on multidisciplinary research that extends from the molecular level to large scale population studies.

Based in state-of-the-art facilities, the school is home to a range of centres, collaborations and units covering genetic and life-course epidemiology, public health and health services, primary health care, psychiatry, community child and adolescent health, methodological sciences and medical ethics.

Bristol Health Partners

The faculty is part of Bristol Health Partners, a partnership between the University, UWE, NHS trusts and the City Council.

By incorporating initiatives for both teaching and research collaboration it aims to improve health outcomes by accelerating research into practice and looking at new ways of delivering clinical services.
