We continue to break new ground and this research has true benefits locally, nationally, and internationally. From world-class cancer research to pioneering the development of new fuels, our academic expertise continues to address the key challenges facing the modern-day world.

Birmingham works to confront the problems of tomorrow, finding innovative solutions to diverse issues that affect us nationally and internationally. From advising and informing political states in support of conflict resolution, to research into disease and the immune system to better understand the ageing process; our experts are leading the way in challenging and preventing problems on the global horizon.

Our early research has had a lasting impact on lives, culture, industry and society: our current research aspires to do the same. We are proud of our research excellence, particularly in three key areas: global health, environment and security.

We ask questions. We create impact. We use our research expertise to solve tomorrow’s problems today.
