Experimental Medicine and Biomedicine

Our research in Experimental Medicine and Biomedicine in York ranges from basic molecular and cellular medicine to pre-clinical and clinical studies. With a predominant focus on immunology and infection and neuroscience research, our research is a key component of the York Biomedical Research Institute.

In immunology and infection, our research incorporates fundamental studies on the immune system and pathogenesis of infectious and non-infectious disease through to first-in-man clinical research. Through integrating our discoveries in basic and clinical immunology, and pathogen biology, we aim to develop new approaches to disease prevention and treatment.

Our research in neuroscience uses a multidisciplinary approach to understand structural, chemical, functional and theoretical aspects of neuronal mechanisms. With a particular strength in neuroimaging, our research focusses on chronic neurological conditions such as epilepsy, autism, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Our work takes place in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and benefits from cutting-edge technologies established in the University of York Bioscience Technology Facility and York Neuroimaging Centre.

We work in close collaboration with the Departments of Biology, Psychology, Chemistry, and Health Sciences.
