Introduction, goals and mission
The Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is an internationally leading, vibrant, collaborative unit of inter-disciplinary researchers. Our research addresses diverse problems in biomedical sciences and health – aligned with local, national and global focus on Healthy Ageing (WHO sustainable development goal). Our research ranges from identifying cancer stem cell metabolism processes and molecular biomarkers through to understanding the impact of zoonotic and pathogenic microbes on human and animal health.
BRC is located within the School of Science Engineering and Environment (SEE) in the University of Salford. We work closely with regional hospitals and have established wider national and international collaborations with universities and research centres, focussing on new and improved treatments on a diverse range of diseases.
Currently, the research in BRC has three established areas of research – Cancer Diagnosis and Prevention, Cardio-Respiratory Physiology and Infectious Diseases. Research on Dementia and Healthy Mind is also among other growing areas of research in the centre. All these areas benefit from inter-disciplinary collaborations with chemists who are also part of BRC as well as collaborations with colleagues from data and health sciences and a commitment to science communication.
