World Leading Research
Our work extends from understanding how pathogens cause disease, through to pioneering new diagnostics, treatments and vaccines.
Five Major Research Challenges underpin all of our research and focus on some of the most important global health issues.
Our research is interdisciplinary and we work with a vast range of experts and partners locally, nationally and internationally. Our major funders include the UK research councils, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), European Commission, Wellcome Trust, Gates Foundation, smaller charities and many pharmaceutical and industrial partners.
