The Institute of Medical Sciences

The Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) is located on the Foresterhill Health Campus, which boasts one of the largest medical campuses in Europe, providing excellent opportunities for both discovery and translational biomedical research.

Our mission is to lead and support world-class research that enhances knowledge and improves health across the life course.

Research at the IMS

Research at the IMS is driven by more than 70 principal investigators (PIs), supported by state-of-the-art facilities and technology hubs for microscopy, histology, cell sorting, qPCR and omics facilities. Discovery and translational research is supported by grant funding from research councils (UKRI) and national and local charities.

The PIs are grouped into five Research Themes capturing our expertise and critical mass. Find them by name here.
