A three times Queens Anniversary Prize winner, we have a proud reputation for conducting world-leading, impactful research. From health technologies to heritage; marine sciences to medicine; psychology to sustainability, University of Plymouth researchers are winning major funding grants, publishing papers in high-impact journals, and forging powerful international partnerships. We are fast developing a critical mass of expertise in emerging areas such as agri-technology, antimicrobial resistance, cybersecurity and creative economies. Our response to global environmental challenges, from the low carbon agenda to water quality and food security in the developing world, highlights our robust commitment to finding solutions to climate change.
Our research strengths take advantage of our coastal and rural location, including the breath-taking natural laboratory of Plymouth Sound. Our waterfront Marine Station, home to our extensive fleet of research vessels, complements the Marine Building featuring wave tanks, a navigation centre, and the cutting-edge Cyber-SHIP Lab that tackles maritime cybersecurity issues.
The new Brain Research and Imaging Centre is the most advanced multi-modal facility in the region and, together with our medical research facility and faculty, is co-located with the University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, facilitating a cross-collaborative environment where many staff combine consultation work and research.
