"UEA is part of the Norwich Research Park, which is one of the outstanding centres for scientific research in UK. The NRP, including UEA, has 3,000 scientists and 15,000 students and is the UK's highest concentration of highly cited scientists outside London and Oxbridge. UEA is adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, which is amongst the 10 largest in the UK. The facilities provide an outstanding environment for postgraduate students in Biomedical and Health Sciences."
Today, our Faculty has over 200 postgraduate students registered across all research degrees and over the last three years, together with partners on the Norwich Research Park, we have attracted new grants to the value of £42 million from Research Councils. Our postgraduate community across the two Schools is thriving – working with world experts in challenging health and biomedical research that delivers our shared vision: to enhance the health, quality of life, and the experience of care of people and the populations in which they live.
Members of the Faculty work closely with other researchers and scientists across the University and across the member organisations of the Norwich Research Park (NRP), an internationally recognised centre of research excellence. As a postgraduate research student you will be a key member of one of the Faculty's research programmes – usually linked to the research of your primary supervisor. Our postgraduates tell us that they benefit greatly from the research collaboration, mentoring and networking within that group of academic staff and other postgraduate research students within and across these research programmes.
The research strategy of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences encourages and supports work across the Faculty and capitalises on the strengths in each of the two Schools:
