The research effort in BLS is directed toward understanding basic cellular and physiological mechanisms that underpin disease states. Research groups in the Division work closely with our colleagues in the rest of the Faculty of Health and Medicine on the Faculty’s core interdisciplinary research themes: Ageing, Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Cancer, Infectious Diseases, Mental Health and Public Health.
At Divisional level our research can be broadly divided into three areas (although substantial collaboration occurs between these areas):
Funding for research in the Division has come from a variety of sources including research councils (e.g. BBSRC, MRC, ESRC), charities (e.g. Wellcome Trust, North West Cancer Research, Alzheimer's Society) and industry (e.g. Boots, GSK, Renshaw, Novartis).
