School of Medicine


Our research spans the translational pathway from pre-clinical research to health and social care delivery and education, applying research to tackle the most challenging health problems faced by patients, clinicians, clinical educators, and societies across the world. We are nationally and internationally recognised for interdisciplinary health research in our key areas of strength (including musculoskeletal health, mental health and well-being, clinical education, cardiovascular disease, prognosis and big data research). We offer a platform for novel and promising methodological research and pedagogical research in medical education.

Keele CTU specialises in the development and delivery of high-quality multicentre clinical trials, testing treatments and health services, as well as other high-quality clinical studies, including large epidemiological studies, in primary and secondary care settings with the aim of improving patient care.

The Impact Accelerator Unit has the leading role in closing the evidence-to-practice gap, by accelerating both the uptake and impact of research evidence. Patients and the public are at the heart of everything we do in the Keele Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement group (PPIE).

We are proud to be a member of the NIHR's School for Primary Care Research.
