Research, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange

The Faculty of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences was founded in 2015 and is composed of three schools within the University of Central Lancashire: Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences housed across the UCLan campus in Preston with satellite facilities in Burnley and West Cumbria (West Lakes). The Faculty is well placed to exploit exciting new multidisciplinary approaches to translational academic research to have a real impact on society. We have the vision of an integrated discovery path from bench to bedside along with appropriate research facilities and collaborations. Our aim is to produce world leading and internationally recognised research groups and outputs in the priority areas.
