Cellular and Molecular Medicine is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for the study of cancer biology, infection and immunity and regenerative medicine and stem cell therapies.
Research within the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is focused on three strategic research themes:
- Cancer biology
- Infection and immunity (immunology, microbiology and virology)
- Regenerative medicine and stem cells
Academics from across the school's various areas of expertise have been involved in studies that have significantly improved our scientific understanding of human disease and facilitated the development of best practice in the clinical environment.
We pride ourselves on how our researchers and students contribute to a portfolio of research that demonstrates how the University is at the forefront to turning science into medicine.
The impact of the research undertaken within the School has been featured by the University:
