UCL SLMS is a part of London’s research powerhouse, with a commitment to research that addresses some of the world’s most pressing problems.

Our work covers the full range of enquiry in biomedical, life and population health sciences.

  • In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 70–80% of our research was graded as internationally excellent or world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour and we were identified as the UK’s strongest medical research grouping.
  • UCL has made cross-disciplinary research a priority and the UCL Research Domains provide strategic coordination across the university and a platform for research communities to engage with partner organisations.
