We are working with our partners to tackle inequalities in all aspects of society, striving to make change for a fairer world and one in which people can enjoy a fulfilling, rewarding life.
We explore what it means to be human – in historical and cultural contexts, within ethical and legal norms and through languages and communication.
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 to forge major advances in human and environmental health.
