School of Clinical Medicine
From the first direct measurement of blood pressure to the unravelling of the complexities of DNA, the University of Cambridge is a global leader in biomedical research, clinical education and healthcare innovation, in areas from cardiovascular medicine to cancer research. A key component of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the University’s School of Clinical Medicine operates in a unique multidisciplinary environment, with a track record of working in close partnership with its NHS colleagues. Through a visionary bench-to-bedside approach, research at the School aims to rapidly translate advances in basic science into clinical benefits for patients.
Formally launched in November 2009, the Cambridge Biomedical Campus encompasses internationally renowned organisations including Cancer Research UK, Cambridge University Hospitals, and the Medical Research Council’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology, which has produced 14 Nobel Prize winners. The UK Government has selected the campus as one of only five ‘Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centres’ in the UK, recognising it as a leader in scientific translation. With plans to double in size by 2020, this is a rapidly growing world-class centre of excellence for biomedical research, education, and patient care.
The University is playing a vital role in producing the medical advances that save lives, and that have the potential to transform the way we understand and treat disease.
