Edinburgh is renowned for biomedical research and I like that lecturers incorporate the latest developments into their teaching material. It keeps you up to date with what issues are facing scientists today.
Our academics’ research achievements have global implications:
We’re still working towards historic firsts today - new treatments for major diseases such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and breast cancer; and innovative work to tackle climate change.
As an internationally renowned centre of academic excellence, we've forged collaborations with leading universities around the world.
Our partners include world-class institutions such as the California Institute of Technology, the Universities of Pennsylvania, Melbourne and Toronto, ETH Zurich, Heidelberg University in Germany and the Universities of Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
