About us

By exploring the life course of health and disease, we approach medicine in a different way.

We unite more than 300 experts in women and children’s health, diabetes, nutritional sciences and the molecular genetics of human disease. Our research links the causes of common health problems to life’s landmark stages treating life, disease and healthcare as a continuum.

We are interdisciplinary by nature and this innovative approach works: 91 per cent of our research submitted to REF 2014 was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent*. We use this expertise to teach the next generation of health professionals and research scientists.

Based across King’s Denmark Hill, Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Waterloo campuses, our academic programme of teaching, research and clinical practice is embedded across five Departments.
