Our members in the Biomedical Sciences Research Institute (BMSRI) at Ulster conduct pioneering, strategically focused research into health and investigates the underlying causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human diseases.We are also exploiting the remarkable opportunities made possible by recent molecular advances: revolutionary changes in biomedicine and biotechnology that will soon transform whole industries and economies, but which offer particular advantages in our field. We confidently expect that the results from our research over the next decade will transform our understanding of human biology and pathology by giving us a real understanding of their very complex molecular aspects. BMSRI is actively pursuing these goals by applying a range of rapidly developing techniques: bioimaging, systems biology, genomics, proteomics, transgenics etc., to a variety of problems in human health. In addition we are committed to providing scientific support for the knowledge-intensive, high-added value biotechnological and biomedical industries, which are establishing themselves in Northern Ireland, and which may reasonably be expected to make substantial contributions to economic renewal. Prospects in medical products and biotechnology and in the modification of foods to produce more valuable, healthier products, are remarkably promising.

BMSRI provides a diverse range of state-of-the-art equipment, specialist laboratories and infrastructure that can offer clinical & translational services to academic researchers and business through eight Core facilities.  These include: the Bioimaging Core Facility, Biomedical and Behavioural Research Unit, Cell Technologies Unit, Genomics Unit, Human Intervention Studies Unit, Mass Spectometry Centre, Translational Medicine Unit and the Vision Science Unit.  Further information is available here
