Research is an important part of medicine. It underpins advances across the spectrum of healthcare, from clinical trials to assess how GPs prescribe medicines, through to molecular biology research identifying new drugs to fight major diseases.
Our research is organised into Centres which each conduct world-class research. Much of this is interdisciplinary, spanning traditional subject boundaries and reaching out into other departments within the Universities of Hull and York. For instance, anatomists work with medical engineers, immunologists with computer scientists and neuroscientists with chemists. This approach provides a vibrant atmosphere and great opportunities for innovative medical research.
