Clinical and Biomedical Sciences

About us

Welcome to the Department of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences, an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research and education, with a focus on understanding the mechanisms and treatment of human disease.

Our research delivers direct benefit to patients, the NHS and industry, with the aim of understanding the underlying cellular, molecular and genomic basis of disease. We are applying this knowledge in innovative ways that will lead to improved treatment and a better quality of life for patients. Scientists and clinicians in CBS work closely together to ensure that our research is directly targeted to clinical need.

Through our innovative undergraduate and postgraduate education programmes, we are training the next generation of clinicians and biomedical scientists to tackle the healthcare and scientific challenges of the future.
