About us

Institute of Life Course and Medical Science

Institute of Life Course and Medical Science provides a powerful focus for understanding the many variables - from bioscience to social - that influence ageing and chronic disease in people throughout their lives.

We've integrated our world-renowned departments in musculoskeletal biology, eye and vision sciences to take a truly holistic approach to the field. This is magnified further by our extensive partnerships.

Our research activity ranges from molecule to population, laboratory to bedside, and we have over 100 research active staff creating new insights into patients, lifestyles, health issues, bioscience, epidemiology and care.

These insights are translating into real world benefits, whether it's the new approaches we developed to prevent muscle wasting in intensive care patients or the retina scan we created to detect cerebral malaria in African children.

Delivering this kind of return on investment's helped us attract solid funding. Our annual budget stands at £11m and income at £5m, with partners including Wellcome Trust, UK Research Councils, NIH (USA), Unilever and GSK.

With our extensive in-house research facilities and strong UK and global academic partners, we're well-placed to continue our mission and realise our ambitious plans in the ageing and chronic disease field.
