Research lies at the heart of our activities at NTU, providing international esteem and opportunities for commercial exploitation. We hold wide-ranging research of international status in world-class facilities. Within the School of Science and Technology, the focus of the Biomedical, Life and Health Sciences Research Centre is health and wellbeing.
Our Biomedical Science research team achieved 100% world-leading or internationally excellent research impact (REF 2014). In addition, our John van Geest Research Centre focusses on two key approaches to the treatment of patients with cancer: improving the diagnosis and management of breast and prostate cancers and developing effective vaccines and immunotherapy that will significantly improve the survival rates and quality of life of cancer sufferers.
World-class research within the School of Science and Technology has recently earned NTU a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education http://www.ntu.ac.uk/research/queens-anniversary-prize/index.html
