University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh Medical School has a vision to understand humans in health and disease and improve lives nationally and across the globe. Our ethos is to encourage work in an interdisciplinary manner across traditional research boundaries and in scale from molecules to populations.
Our research is aligned within 7 major themes: Cancer, Genetics, Global Health, Health Data and Informatics, Regeneration and Repair, Cardiometabolic Disease and Reproductive Health.
Our long-term strategy anticipated the current drive to co-locate clinical and basic science groups with state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities that enable ‘close to the patient’ data-rich research.
