Excellent scientific research can impact, change and benefit the society we live in and our quality of life. We might see the impact in our economy, in our culture, our public policy or services, in health provision, or in the environment.
The importance of impact arising from high-quality research was recognised in the recent REF (research excellence framework) assessment. The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences submitted case studies covering a diverse mix of research from human medicine to drug discovery and therapy design, to health risk assessment policy and vaccine development. 80% of our studies were rated as having 'internationally excellent' or 'world-leading' impact.
Examples of research impact benefiting the local community:

Improving Access to Exercise for People with Neurological Conditions
