College of Health and Life Sciences Research
We conduct internationally recognised research with exploitable outputs that change lives.
We specialise in four key multidisciplinary themes of cellular and molecular biomedicine, health and disease across the lifespan, clinical and systems neuroscience, and vision, cognition, and language.
We are home to one of Aston’s four research institutes, three centres of excellence, and seven research groups. Our research groups link directly with our five schools of study; the School of Biosciences, Aston Medical School, School of Optometry, Aston Pharmacy School, and School of Psychology, ensuring our research is fed directly into teaching, providing our students with access to the latest findings, trends, and thinking in the field.
