The Department of Medicine provides high quality research, teaching and patient care. It is the largest department in the School of Clinical Medicine, and is comprised of 11 Divisions, each aligned to a clinical specialty within the NHS.

The Department of Medicine covers the following specialisms:

  • Anaesthesia
  • Cardiovascular medicine
  • Clinical pharmacology
  • Diabetes and endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology and hepatology
  • Immunology
  • Infectious diseases
  • Metabolic medicine
  • Renal medicine
  • Respiratory medicine
  • Rheumatology

The research interests of the Divisions are necessarily broad, although many groups work in the general area of immunity, inflammation and infection. The Department aims to perform high quality basic scientific as well as translational research, and to do this maximising synergy with other scientists on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and throughout the region.
