Launch of The School of Medicine and Biosciences 

A new interdisciplinary research-driven school at the University of West London (UWL) has opened its doors. 

The School of Medicine and Biosciences (SMB) is located in Ealing, a diverse area in West London with pockets of deprivation and affluence. UWL’s vision is to improve the health of local communities and reduce inequalities by developing and delivering hyperlocal health and social care initiatives with the potential to scale up nationally, working in partnership with policymakers and frontline practitioners. 

The SMB’s research will focus on ageing and dementia, healthcare inequalities and enabling healthcare, and apply its expertise in a number of areas from malnutrition treatment and infection control to VR-assisted medical training, Artificial Intelligence (AI) scan processing and gene-targeted cancer therapy.
