The research and innovation arm of Swansea University's College of Medicine is the Institute of Life Science (ILS). The vision for ILS is to advance medical science through interdisciplinary research and innovation to improve the health wealth and well-being of the people of Wales and beyond.
The Institute of Life Science:
- is a unique example of successful collaboration between NHS, academia and industry in the life science and health sector.
- enjoys close links with the Colleges of Engineering and Science especially through the Centre for Nano-Health.
- is Wales' premier purpose-built medical research facility.
- is a collaboration between Swansea University and the Welsh Government, together with Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, and industry and business partners.
Our research focuses around four themes: Biomarkers and Genes; Devices; Microbes and Immunity; and Patient and Population Health and Informatics.
Thanks to the interdisciplinary ethos of the Institute of Life Science, researchers dedicated to four theme areas work together seamlessly on complex medical problems that have both biological and social impacts. Candidates are asked to nominate their preferred research area.
