Research in Clinical Biochemistry ranges from the purely clinical setting through to basic science with an emphasis on the translational opportunities “from bench to bedside”. Subject areas include the biochemical, biological, biomedical and life sciences and a wide range of topics in mammalian molecular biology, molecular medicine, epigenetics, proteomics, physiology, structural biology, protein biochemistry, analytical biochemistry, clinical biochemistry and neuroscience. There is an emphasis on links to clinical and other complementary expertise across the four sites comprising the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital at Oswestry, the Haywood Hospital and Keele University campus. A wide range of research facilities and state-of-the-art equipment are available in purpose-built laboratories in the Huxley Building (School of Life Sciences), the Guy Hilton Research Centre (Hartshill, Hospital site) and RJAH Oswestry, including the Keele Proteomics Facility .
