Student Profile Gwenllian Roberts

Graduate Entry Medicine

"I'm on my year long placement in GP. I'm really enjoying being part of the team and assessing patients and seeing them throughout the day. We've also spent a month in hospital seeing the A&E and ITU side of it. This is great as there are certain things you wouldn't see in GP and it's important to get experience of that as well."

Our Research in Medicine

Within the School of Medical Sciences, we employ state-of-the-art approaches to address basic research questions in medicine and/or develop applications to overcome serious unmet clinical needs. We’re ranked in the top 10 for Research Quality (Complete University Guide 2022) and we have an overarching aim of improving the patient pathway, either by contributing new insights to fill an important gap in medical knowledge or developing applications which directly contribute to improving health and well-being.  

We have a strong focus on cancer research where our research teams are not only exploring the complex processes which result in the development, progression and therapeutic resistance of cancers, but are also developing the basis for new therapies and patient monitoring technologies. The cancer research teams are housed in the North West Cancer Research Institute, which integrates us with the wider research networks in other leading research intense universities world-wide and health providers, to ensure that our research is relevant to the needs of cancer patients within Wales and beyond.
