Organisation profile

Welcome to the School of Pharmacy's research pages. In the 2008 UK RAE(Research Assessment Exercise - national assessment of university research quality), 95% of our research was judged as international quality, with 55% classed as world leading or internationally excellent, ranking us as one of the leading academic centres for Pharmacy research in the UK.

Our research ethos Pharmacy is a multidisciplinary subject; hence you will see that we are working on aspects of social sciences, clinical sciences, physicochemical sciences and even engineering!  As a Pharmacy school, we focus on drugs to prevent, alleviate or cure diseases and our research programmes range from drug design and discovery, to formulation and delivery, and on to action and use. Increasingly, many aspects of our research are carried out in collaboration with world leading colleagues and research centres in Europe, Asia and North America.

How we work Our research is organised under two divisions or clusters - Pharmaceutical Science and Practice, and Molecular Therapeutics. Both clusters have a number of key themes and associated research programmes which are mainly funded by UK and European Government sources, leading medical charities and the pharmaceutical industry. Our ultimate aim is to deliver real benefits for patients from our academic research programmes. Thus, we value highly the translational aspects of research.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):
