Organisation profile

The School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences strives to find new ways to help those with debilitating illnesses and diseases.

In order to nurture a progressive research environment, many of our staff are actively engaged in internationally-recognised work – such as molecular medicine (including oncology, the neurosciences and inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy) and medicines research. We're also researching diseases that currently have no cure, such as Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis and cancer. 

We recognise that research is a core academic activity, which is why we contribute so much to multidisciplinary research across the University. It's this positive research environment that recently placed the university in the top 3 for funding in England in the subject Allied Health Professions & Studies.

Our school offers an environment that is conducive to producing excellent research and impacts. This has produced excellent results in the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), where 100% of the impact from our research was classified as 'outstanding'. We also contribute to the Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science (IBBS), where 100% of our biological and biomedical research was rated as outstanding or very considerable (Research Excellence Framework 2014).

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Drug delivery
  • Microbiology
  • Molecular mechanisms of diseases
  • Neurobiology
  • Pharmacy practice
