We are one of four schools within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.
The School of Biomedical Sciences (SBMS) aims to achieve excellence in biomedical research and teaching.
We conduct groundbreaking research through our interdisciplinary research centres. We currently attract 76 research grants, worth a combined £37m.
We teach undergraduates and run the BSc (Hons) Medical Sciences degree programme. This is administered through the Biomedical Teaching Organisation.
The School of Biomedical Sciences has been awarded a Silver Award by Athena SWAN in recognition of its good practice on recruiting, retaining and promoting women in SET (Science, Engineering and Technology) in higher education.
The School of Biomedical Sciences is committed to social responsibility and reducing the School’s environmental impact in an effort to improve the working environment. We take part in the sustainability awards which are run by the Edinburgh University Students’ Association and the University of Edinburgh's Sustainability Office.
