A powerhouse for Health & Life Sciences research

The University of Liverpool has been at the forefront of Health & Life Sciences research for 130 years and we continue to build on the impressive research knowledge, experience, resources and partnerships we have amassed.

In 2011 we had 1100 grants, representing a total grant value of £175m and funding the work of over 1850 research active staff within the faculty's departments, schools and institutes.

Within our institutes and centres of excellence, our people and partners are addressing key health and life science questions, making valuable discoveries and ensuring our research benefits the world's inhabitants.

This makes us a tremendously rewarding environment in which to pursue research; one that offers exceptional facilities, comprehensive professional support and the company of world leading colleagues.

With its diverse and challenging urban health population, the city of Liverpool provides a valuable setting for research. Find out more about our collaboration with Liverpool Health partners.
