Healthy Living for All
Colleagues across our Schools and Faculties are dedicated to deepening our understanding of diseases, and developing solutions and treatments for them.
Our expertise in conducting clinical trials and our world leading facilities in cancer and precision medicine research are a testament to the breakthroughs that Queen’s research has facilitated over the decades. We are also leading the way in developing strategies and initiatives which mitigate against the worst effects of illness and which act as preventative agents to illnesses developing in the first place.
A strong public health approach, focusing on community well-being and cultural enrichment, aligned with a commitment to educational opportunity and social justice drives our pledge to improve health outcomes which can reduce inequalities across society.
