The Biomedical Research Centre (BMRC) is a unique collaboration between the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Medicine, Health Policy and Practice, one of Britain's first new medical schools for almost thirty years. UEA's School of Biological Sciences is internationally recognised for the importance and excellence of its research (Rated 5 at RAE 2001).
Building on this success the new Biomedical Research Centre is undertaking pioneering work into diet and health, cancer, arthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurological disease, hearing disorders and infectious diseases. The research undertaken will help to provide greater understanding and better treatment of some of the 21st Century's toughest medical challenges.
Purpose built, the new BMRC provides essential state-of-the-art infrastructure and is a base for over 100 research scientists. The Centre will maintain close links with the nearby Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, to ensure that all research has as its ultimate objective the solution of problems experienced by patients.
