We focus on answering core questions in the biomedical field around topics such as diabetes, molecular mechanisms, cancer and infectious diseases.
Hosting over 80 principal investigators covering a range of disciplines, we provide an environment that allows novel collaborations to flourish.
We aim to unravel the secrets of chronic and infectious diseases using state-of-the art technology and creative thinking. Our ambition is to carry out research that is relevant nationally and has global reach.

Clinical and translational research
Clinical research at York is a joint venture, utilising the expertise and resources of the University of York, Hull York Medical School and York Teaching Hospital NHS Trust.
We aim to provide an environment that can deliver early phase trials (phase I and phase II) and support basic scientific research which could have high impact results.
We established the York Tissue Bank, which provides researchers with human tissue samples for studies.
York Biomedical Research Institute sits within the University's overarching Health and Wellbeing research theme.
