The Institute of Life Science provides a research environment offering an interdisciplinary approach to translational medicine, from basic laboratory science to health care delivery, and an innovative approach to building the knowledge economy. We organise our research into four core themes:

There is considerable overlap between these themes, with many members of the School contributing to more than one theme, and many research projects that cut across theme boundaries. The ILS is an environment in which collaborations develop naturally between researchers working on diverse topics. These projects make use of our six major ILS facilities: eHealth and Informatics, Mass Spectrometry, the Centre for NanoHealth, the Biomedical Laboratories , the Joint Clinical Research Facilites and Commercial Incubators.
