Institute of Medical Sciences
The Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) is a unique, cross-school institution that supports and coordinates research between the School of Medical Sciences and the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
With the focus to develop future effective therapies, nearly 400 researchers and support staff work on cutting-edge biomedical subjects aimed at understanding the human body, how it functions, and its response to infection and disease. The IMS is comprised of dedicated buildings on the Foresterhill Health Campus, situated on the central site of the state-of-the-art Aberdeen hospital, boasting the largest medical campus in Europe. The IMS provides excellent laboratory space and facilities necessary for outstanding research and gives unique opportunities for translational investigations with internationally recognised clinicians and collaborations with world-leading institutions.
Human health is the focus of research at the IMS, beginning with analysis of the essential structure of the cell and the molecules that make it up. Research programmes within the IMS include Cell, Developmental and Cancer Biology, Microbiology and Translational Neuroscience, although all researchers are actively encouraged to work together to facilitate inter-disciplinary research.
