Your facilities

The College is home to a whole host of learning resources and facilities, all of which you have access to as a postgraduate student.

Institute For Biomedical Research

The majority of the research groups in the Centre are based in the Institute For Biomedical Research, a £28 million development with 3000 m2 of state of the art laboratory accommodation. The IBR building was completed in 2003 using £30m of JIF-research facility funding. It provides an interactive research environment for over 300 scientists

The Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry

In April 2016, the doors of the new four-storey Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry opened, bringing a huge range of benefits to staff, students and patients. Split into two wings, the innovative building has been designed to offer better integration and more flexibility in providing tailored services to patients, as well as offering world-class research facilities and a modern learning environment for over 600 students and trainees.

Clinical Collaborations

We also have significant links and clinical collaborations with major NHS Trusts in the region including University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Selly Oak Hospital, and within a number of other NHS Trusts, including Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospitals, as well as Heart of England, Sandwell and West Birmingham and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Trusts, ensuring that our research, practice and strategy are well linked in with all of our neighbouring NHS Trusts. Our applied work is often user-initiated, with clinicians – including both public health and primary care clinicians, and external collaborators – identifying research issues that will provide greatest potential benefit to patients and other clients within the NHS.
