Departments

The Medical School is composed of three Faculty departments and the Unit of Medical Education (AUME).

Cardiovascular

Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease

Comprises strong groups working in basic and clinical science. Major strengths are in the role of innate immunity in disease and in computer modelling/imaging and prediction of disease to improve treatment outcomes.

Human Metabolism

Human Metabolism

Brings together laboratories with international reputations for research in both basic and clinical sciences. These include the Academic Units of Bone Metabolism, Bone Biology, the Children's Bone Disease Group, Rheumatology and Molecular Medicine, Reproductive & Developmental Medicine and Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism. This merged with Oncology in October 2015.

Neuroscience

Neuroscience

This Department is multifaceted, investigating neuroscience at every scale from pathological disease in humans, through studies of brain function in psychiatric disorders, to the biological development of neural tissue.

Oncology

Oncology

This Department has developed rapidly since the early 1990s. Over the last ten years there has been a tremendous increase in the quality and quantity of both clinical and laboratory based research. High quality, senior appointments have been made to ensure the establishment and development of an internationally competitive cancer research programme. The department merged with Human Metabolism in 2015.

AUME

As an Academic Unit in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sheffield, Medical Education is a significant university-based concentration of medical education resources and one of the most important in the UK.
