UCL has made interdisciplinary research a priority, as exemplified by its approach to the Grand Challenges.
working across traditional subject barriers enables ideas from one
subject area to be seeded into another, resulting in fruitful new ideas –
and even new disciplines. In SLMS, interdisciplinarity is
encouraged and facilitated through our Research Domains
The SLMS Research Domains are fluid interdisciplinary networks that encompass the breadth of research activity across the School, UCL and, in some cases, external partners.
There are nine core groupings: Basic Life Science; Cancer; Cardiometabolic science; Experimental Medicine; Infection, Immunology and Inflammation; Population health; Neuroscience; Reproduction and Development; as well as a Frontiers ‘think tank’ which scopes the future focus of scientific endeavour.
Members of our academic community engage in one or more of
the domains according to their research activity, encouraging
interdisciplinarity across our School and beyond.

If you are a member of academic staff, to become a member of a domain simply select the relevant 'IRIS' theme when you complete your IRIS profile. You will then be automatically added to the domain community.
More information about IRIS is available at www.iris.ucl.ac.uk
The School produces a range of publications including an ongoing series that showcases some of the outstanding research being carried out within the School and with collaborators across UCL, in London, nationally and internationally.
