Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry

Part of Queen Mary University of London, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD) is regularly ranked as one of the best medical and dental schools in the country. Our funding here is for ground-breaking research, often of national and international importance.

World-leading research

The expertise of SMD researchers spans all areas of medical science, from genetic, molecular and cellular studies to work in primary care and population health. Many of them are nationally and internationally recognised experts in their fields. As well as working to understand disease and develop innovative new treatments, they are also exploring practical matters such as how healthcare can best be delivered to patients.

Working closely with the clinical staff in Barts Health hospitals, SMD researchers engage patients in research to accelerate the development of new treatments, and drive forward changes in clinical practice.
