University of Liverpool research is contributing to some of the most pressing challenges facing the world today.

We are bringing together internationally-renowned researchers from across the faculties of Health and Life SciencesScience and Engineering, and Humanities and Social Sciences, to conduct research that has a significant impact on global policy, the environment, and the lives of people from around the world. It is essential the knowledge and experience from these endeavours are shared with the wider community to ensure we move towards building a more sustainable future.
