From atoms to astronomy, computers to cars and robots to robust materials, our goal is to transform our understanding of the world to make life easier, healthier and more sustainable.
Across the breadth of life and environmental sciences we discover, apply and translate science, forging major advances in human and environmental health.
With over 1,000 academic staff researchers and around £80 million new research funding per year, we are dedicated to performing world-leading research with the ultimate goal of improving human health.
We address the challenges facing society and the economy, from shedding light on the refugee crisis, to character education in schools, through to developing leaders in the NHS.
Founded in 1974, the Urban Morphology Research Group (UMRG), in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, is the major centre in the United Kingdom for the study of the geographical aspects of urban form.
The Group seeks to advance knowledge of urban areas through the study of their history and the agents and ideas involved in their creation and transformation.
Made up of teaching and research staff, honorary research fellows, research students and associate members, the Group offers a lively environment for both post-graduate and post-doctoral research.
There are two major subdivisions of the Group’s research:
The Group plays a major role in co-ordinating international research, in conjunction with the International Seminar on Urban Form (ISUF). It is the editorial home of the international journal Urban Morphology.
