Our pioneering research into human biology is undertaken by teams of dedicated researchers exploring exciting science enabled by our excellent research facilities.
Together our research and facility teams work to push the boundaries of knowledge and we share our advances through publications and research and commercial partnerships to allow others to build as quickly as possible on our discoveries.
Our world-leading research explores and uncovers the molecular mechanisms involved in cellular processes and functions. A particular focus is how we age and we study the underlying mechanisms controlling this process, for example how older people respond differently to infection compared to the young. To understand how to maintain health and improve wellbeing we chart new areas of fundamental biology: examining the regulation of gene expression, the control of cell function by signalling processes and the complexities of the development and function of our immune system.
