Our mission at the York Biomedical Research Institute (YBRI) is to advance discoveries in biomedical sciences, to inspire, train, and mentor the next generation of biomedical researchers. We aim to understand disease processes to positively impact health and wellbeing.
We host over 80 principal investigators whose expertise covers a range of disciplines, addressing biomedical challenges on regional, national and global scales.
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.

Interdisciplinary research themes
Molecular and cellular medicine
Embraces how cells specialise to form and maintain healthy, functional tissues and the mechanisms that fail in chronic degenerative disease.
Immunology, haematology and infection
Covers cellular immunology, host-pathogen interactions, pathogen biology, and experimental and population haematology.
Spans research into molecular mechanisms to behaviour of the whole organism, while also embracing patient-based studies.
Research without boundaries
Our interdisciplinary research is carried out by both individual researchers and scientific teams. Our aims are to integrate techniques, concepts, and theories from multiple disciplines to advance fundamental understanding of biomedical problems. Our cross-theme topics are:
PhD in Biomedical Sciences
Our PhD in Biomedical Sciences provides an opportunity for outstanding graduates with an interest in biomedical research.
