The importance of research

THE CHANCES ARE THAT YOUR LIFE OR THAT OF SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU HAS BEEN TOUCHED BY MEDICAL RESEARCH.

Ideas generated in Northern Ireland’s laboratories and developed through clinical trials have resulted in advances which have revolutionised patient care and given new hope to people wherever they may be.

Work of global standing

FOR GENERATIONS, QUEEN’S HAS EDUCATED DOCTORS, NURSES AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS WHO GO ON TO SERVE SOCIETY AT HOME AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

Our work in many fields of medicine has won global acclaim and is attracting gifted international researchers to the university.

Tackling cancer head-on

OUR CENTRE FOR CANCER RESEARCH AND CELL BIOLOGY (CCRCB) IS CONSIDERED AMONG THE FINEST OF ITS KIND.

Survival rates for cancer in Northern Ireland are now among the best in the UK.

Always advancing

THE NEW INSTITUTE OF HEALTH SCIENCES WILL TAKE OUR AMBITIONS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

In 2012, an initiative led by queen’s in partnership with the local health and social care trusts, won a Diamond Jubilee Queen’s Anniversary Prize for reorganising cancer care throughout Northern Ireland.

A leading centre, all under one roof

IN 2015, THE WELLCOME-WOLFSON INSTITUTE FOR EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINE OPENED ALONGSIDE THE CCRCB.

This brings together on the same site, in state-of-the-art research facilities, over 1,000 leading scientists and clinicians charting a course from discovery to recovery. Here they are engaging in research seeking to overcome some of the major health problems of our time, including cancer, cystic fibrosis, asthma and multiple sclerosis.

Answering important questions

RESEARCH WITHIN THE INSTITUTE IS FOCUSED ON TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE, DEVELOPING LABORATORY DISCOVERIES INTO NEW THERAPIES AND IMPACTING OUTCOMES FOR PATIENTS ACROSS THE GLOBE

A recruitment campaign is already underway to attract the best thinkers, clinicians, scientists and innovators. Time is of the essence. With your help we can realise our ambitions faster and take queen’s and northern ireland to the very forefront of global medical research and healthcare.
