The College of Life, Health and Physical Sciences is committed to transforming the lives and experiences of people and their environments through research that drives positive change and economic and social benefits.
Our research leads to earlier diagnoses and improved treatments for chronic debilitating conditions, advises and informs clinical and professional healthcare practice, takes biomedical products to market, provides technological advances that make vehicles safer and more fuel efficient with cleaner exhaust gases, designs and models earthquake resistant buildings, develops low-cost water quality monitoring tools, influences and rewrites policy for society-environment interactions, and develops innovative computational tools to analyse language use and provides robust data privacy and security to global business. It permeates individual, societal, regional and global concerns and we have an especially strong and close relationship with industry, NHS Trusts, NGOs, social enterprises and individual donors and beneficiaries.
The college promotes a spirit of adventure in our research that attracts excellent research students and fellows. We work inclusively and encourage interdisciplinary research both within the college, across colleges and with our global research partners. Researchers are supported by a range of internal pump-priming initiatives, a workload model that recognises research effort and output, and a genuinely friendly and modern work environment.
