Message from Professor Tim Skerry, Head of Department
“I am delighted to announce that the REF assessment confirms our position within Sheffield’s excellent result. Staff in the Department of Human Metabolism were returned in the Allied Health category where Sheffield was ranked number 1 in the UK and in Clinical Medicine where we are in the top 10 in the UK in research output. This is great news for the University, the department and the research staff whose excellence has been recognised so clearly. We are particularly pleased to see the very positive rankings given to our impact cases. Well done to all.” The full Sheffield news can be found here.
Our research here at the Department of Human Metabolism encompasses the life course. We have specialists in conception and reproduction, through childhood and adolescence, and into old age.
With access to world class facilities, our researchers study human processes from the level of basic biology through to diseases such as osteoporosis and diabetes.
We focus on translating scientific discoveries into meaningful advances in the clinic that can benefit our patients and the general population.
