Associated research centres
Scientists across the Sheffield Medical School work in collaboration with a broad range of interdisciplinary research institutes and centres.
Associated research centres
The Neuroscience Institute at the University of Sheffield brings together leading experts in medicine, science and engineering to better understand the nervous system and tackle the biggest challenges in neuroscience.
Healthy Lifespan Institute
At the Healthy Lifespan Institute we're uniting over 120 world-class researchers from a wide range of disciplines to tackle the global epidemic of multimorbidity – the presence of two or more chronic conditions – in a bid to help everyone live healthier, independent lives for longer and reduce the cost of care.
Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience
SITraN is one of the world leading centres for research into Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease. From basic neuroscience research to novel therapies and clinical trials - our aim is to improve the lives of patients with neurodegenerative disorders and their families worldwide.
The Mellanby Centre
The Mellanby Centre for Bone Research aims to establish a focus for bone research, foster the development of inter-disciplinary research, develop collaborative research programmes and grant applications, and develop links with the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.
Centre for Integrated Research into Musculoskeletal Ageing
The MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) was formed in 2012 and has developed an integrated approach to studying the effects of ageing on the musculoskeletal system, which has been demonstrably successful.
Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine
The mission of Insigneo is to perform cutting edge research in areas of fundamental and applied biomedical modelling, imaging and informatics, so implementing the scientific ambition behind the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH), and transforming healthcare.
The Bateson Centre
The Bateson Centre is a partnership between basic and clinician scientists, and is the world’s first Centre for Lifecourse Biology; studying mechanisms of change throughout life, including growth, remodelling, degeneration and repair with obvious importance in maintaining health and treating disease.
Imagine: Imaging Life
We develop and apply cutting-edge imaging technologies to address important biological and biomedical problems. Based in state-of-the-art facilities, we bring together specialists in the biological application of super-resolution microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and cryo electron microscopy.
Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH)
We research, develop, evaluate and implement new technologies to enable people to live well and age well. Our aim is to make a significant and lasting contribution to the quality of life and independence of the growing number of people with disabilities and long-term health conditions.
Donald Heath Research Programme in Pulmonary Hypertension
This programme comprises multidisciplinary research across the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with particular emphasis on patient orientated research. Current project include biomarker discovery, novel therapies and diagnostic imaging.
Centre for Urgent and Emergency Care Research (CURE)
CURE researchers undertake health service research into the organisation and delivery of urgent and emergency care, and work with the Clinical Trials Unit and Section of Health Economics and Decision Science to undertake health technology assessment relevant to urgent and emergency care.
Mental Health Research Unit
In the Mental Health Research Unit, we are a multidisciplinary, multi-professional group of academic staff, Research Fellows, Research Associates and administrative staff. Currently MHRU includes both clinical and non-clinical academics, as well as honorary members of staff.
