Research to improve our world
Being taught by staff who are research active means that you’ll benefit directly from our extensive expertise, experience and knowledge across a breadth of disciplines.
Our research is coordinated through the Institute of Biomedical & Environmental Health (IBEHR) which is internationally recognised and was rated as producing world-leading and international standard research in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF).
This programme opened up opportunities for higher study. The course content and practical training made me confident enough to do research and teaching on advanced reproductive biotechnology.
While studying at UWS, I was given the opportunity to do a PhD at Kyushu University in Japan on a Japanese Government Scholarship. Now I am a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Kansas Medical Centre, conducting research on female reproductive physiology, ie placental biology.
