The University of Birmingham Medical School aims to create one of the most powerful medical research and teaching centres in Europe through strategic development of research partnerships that bring together basic science, clinical and community researchers within the University and beyond with the NHS and related-health entities so as to generate knowledge that will contribute to the health of the nation. The translation of research outputs into improvements in patient care, innovative therapies and new drugs is paramount. To this end researchers currently work with a range of sponsors and collaborators to maximise the impact of research undertaken at the School. The Clinical Science Division has a strategy of sustainable research and was graded 5* in the last RAE. The Medical School provides extensive state-of the-art research facilities including the Institute for Biomedical Research (IBR). This new facility was designed so that clinical and basic scientists can work together in multidisciplinary research teams to address national and international health priorities. The Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics (Head Professor E.R. Maher) provides a stimulating environment for molecular genetics research. All academic staff (three Professors, three Senior Lecturers and two Clinician Scientists) are research active and supervise ~40 associated research fellows and students. There are excellent facilities for molecular genetics, functional genomics and animal models such as mouse and zebrafish.
