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 contains 11 divisions, covering the following specialisms:
Diabetes and endocrinology
Gastroenterology and hepatology
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.
Philanthropic giving is at the heart of the success of the Collegiate University, enabling us to make discoveries that change the world and to ensure that our students received an unrivalled education.
At any one time, more than 1000 clinical trials are being conducted across the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the largest gathering of clinical, pharmaceutical and biomedical research specialists in Europe. These trials are a crucial step in the design of new medicines and medical devices – translating ideas that started in a research laboratory into new treatments for patients.
