Life Sciences

Our Life Sciences Initiative is a multidisciplinary endeavour that aims to establish a unique life sciences cluster in London. We will work with partners from the local community, higher education, NHS and industry to make a significant contribution to the health of people at regional, national and international levels.

Get creative in 2017 and take part in a new Life Sciences Image Competition!

We are launching a new competition to find outstanding and engaging images, open to QMUL staff and students, and Tower Hamlets residents and school pupils.

You could win an Apple iPad Pro with Apple Pencil; winners will be announced at an exhibition event in May and shortlisted images will be displayed locally in Whitechapel. Images can be created using any artistic or scientific media, including photography, illustration, microscopy, medical imaging and painting.
