The Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science (IBBS) serves as a focus for multidisciplinary research in the biomedical sciences, including both fundamental studies and applied research in the molecular biosciences. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008) , our reputation for high quality research was further enhanced when IBBS was rated in the top 3 English universities in Unit of Assessment 12, and 85% of our research was recognised as being of international quality.
IBBS has 45 HEFCE funded principal investigators and current externally funded research grants total over £10m, principally from the Research Councils (BBSRC, EPSRC, MRC), the Wellcome Trust, charities, NHS, EU and the Pharmaceutical Industry. IBBS is excellently equipped for research at molecular and cellular levels, with a wide range of core facilities.
IBBS is organised into the following research divisions:
The Institute comprises staff from the School of Biological Sciences, Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and Health Science and Social Work; there is, however, substantial interaction between groups, and many research projects are collaborative. Current externally funded research grants total over £6m, principally from the Research Councils (BBSRC, EPSRC), Biomedical charities (e.g. the Wellcome Trust), the NHS, the EU and the Pharmaceutical Industry.
