MEDICINE HEALTH AND LIFE SCIENCES

From soil structures to palliative care, the Faculty of Medicine, Health & Life Sciences takes a cross disciplinary approach to the whole of life - human life, animal life, marine life, plant life & the ecology that binds us together. We work with industry and health service partners to address some of the world's greatest challenges and make real change in our world. This has resulted in a range of innovations, from new treatments for patients and greater levels of protection for the food we eat.

Our research centres in Global Food Security, Experimental Medicine, Cancer & Cell Biology and Public Health are integrated through the four core schools of the Faculty. Queen's has been a leader in the development of digital pathology and now through the huge opportunity of the recently announced Belfast Region City Deal we are going further - binding our work together with the expertise of our colleagues in Engineering & Physical Sciences to develop a new centre of innovation in digital health. It’s an exciting time to be in health at Queens.
