Research, science and a commitment to enquiry and discovery inform every aspect of the School's mission

Our School has a wide and dynamic research portfolio extending from in silico bioinformatics, molecular laboratory investigations of disease to clinical research evaluating new therapeutic strategies.

Our 100 investigators generate approximately €15 million in annual research income and have grants under management work over €85 million. They also generate over 1,500 publications per year. 

Many of our research staff are involved in multi-national research projects and clinical trials, contributing to UCD’s global footprint in healthcare science research.

In addition our undergraduate students are always encouraged to immerse themselves in structured medical research throughout their studies. This approach is consistent with our desire to shape not just world-class healthcare professionals but also scientific innovators who will advance the boundaries of medical understanding and contibute to the development of new approaches to treatment and care to benefit patients.
