Research Expertise

Our research is rated world leading according to the Research Excellence Framework, which assesses the quality and impact of research by UK universities. Our Partnerships and Business Engagement Team focuses on three areas of expertise to help organisations tap into our diverse skills set.

Mathematics and Statistics

The faculty also hosts one of the most industrially-engaged mathematics and statistics departments in the UK. The department has strong collaborative links with the medical research industry in the design of novel trials through the Medical and Pharmaceutical Statistics research unit and leads the delivery of the STORi Centre for Doctoral Training with approximately 30 industry co-sponsored PhD students. The department is also host to multiple industrially co-supported research projects and is always keen to develop further collaborative links.
