Our research ranges from the core disciplines of our schools through to interdisciplinary areas.
Multidisciplinary research themes bring our disciplines together to provide new insights and solutions in a range of topics. They attract funding from a wide range of bodies, especially UK and EU research councils.
You can find more information about our research within each school, research institute or research theme.
14 SepDIDIDA, supported by £6.75m in funding from the European Union and UKRI, is developing new ways to use lateral flow tests, similar to those used to diagnose COVID-19, to diagnose more than one disease at the same time in even the most remote locations. The technology aims to diagnose multiple infectious conditions including the five leading causes of death in sub-Saharan Africa: severe respiratory infections, HIV/AIDS, diarrhoea, malaria, and tuberculosis.
