The research activity at Swansea University Medical School is centred around its interdisciplinary research enterprise, the Institute of Life Science (ILS), where research activity covers the spectrum of medicine from laboratory-based biomedical research (BIOMED) to public health, population sciences and health services research (CHIRAL). Thanks to the interdisciplinary ethos of the ILS, researchers dedicated to both of these areas can work together seamlessly on complex medical problems that have both biological and social impacts, such as diabetes and mental health disorders.
Candidates will be asked to nominate their preferred research areas (BIOMED, CHIRAL) from a range of potential topics for research students.
