Program description

Bioscience and Medicine

Our School of Biosciences and Medicine is home to a first-class research community and has well-established connections with industry and clinical practice. 

Research within the School fully embraces the ‘bench to bedside’ concept, ranging from molecular and computational studies through to clinical trials. We have a strong interdisciplinary set of research sections and centers which interact with each other, other parts of the University, and with external collaborators. 

Our research is truly international, with Surrey academics and students coming from around the globe. Many ongoing research projects involve active collaborations with international researchers and institutions. 

The University is home to a Doctoral College and a vibrant researcher development program that supports postgraduate research students and other research trainees. We also have careers advisers dedicated to the support of postgraduate research students and research trainees. 

Our academics are engaged in world-leading discovery and applied research to improve human and animal health, and are frequently published in top academic journals such as Nature,  Lancet, and the British Medical Journal. The research in bioscience and medicine is an important part of our Faculty’s interdisciplinary program of ‘One Health’. As such, our researchers are part of a strong collaborative and interdisciplinary group that includes links to Surrey Health Partners. We’re also regularly featured in the media as experts in the field. 

In the 2018 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES), 95 per cent of Surrey students in biosciences and medicine gave positive responses regarding supervision.
