Our Research


At Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, QMUL, we aim to achieve the highest standards in research and to make a real impact on health related problems for the benefit of local and global populations. 

Our intention is to recruit and retain academic staff who are current or future world leaders in their fields and to develop and nurture academic careers in a supportive environment.

At Barts and The London, QMUL, we encourage an ethos of inter-disciplinary working.  Many of our projects and examples of research excellence are obtained through cross-over between research themes and institutes. We capitalise on our strengths, for example, in genomics, functional genomics and post-genomic phenotyping, and harness knowledge and scholarships for creation and innovation in cancer, cardiovascular, inflammation and trauma and population health.

Our research stretches from basic science at the laboratory bench, to identifying novel targets, drugs or other treatments, and applied health research involving patients through to public health interventions. With our partner organisations, we are in advanced planning of a major £600 million investment in a new strategic initiative known as Barts Life Sciences which will harness and take to a new level, our multi-disciplinary biomedical life sciences research and training in the faculty.
