Research excellence and national assessment (REF2014) results
The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine’s reputation has been affirmed: December 2014
The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine’s (CMVM) reputation as one of the world’s leading centres of medical and veterinary medical research has been reaffirmed by its UK research excellence and national assessment (REF2014) results.
The College submission, to which the IGMM made a huge contribution, achieved an excellent UK research assessment outcome by the key comparators - research quality, research power (quality x volume) and ranking relative to other UK higher education institutions (HEIs). Research power is the globally recognised determinant of research reputation, and within the UK ultimately influences recurrent funding to HEIs by Higher Education Funding Councils.
