Company Information
The Centre for Experimental Medicine (CEM) is located in the newly opened award-winning Wellcome Wolfson building and is part of Queen’s University Belfast Global Research Institute for Health Sciences. Fifty research groups are committed to undertaking state-of-the-art fundamental research while delivering translational impact on respiratory disease, eye disease, and infectious diseases. Indeed, the CEM is addressing key global health issues, such as acute respiratory virus infections, diabetes-associated complications, asthma, acute respiratory distress syndrome, cystic fibrosis, and the major problem of antimicrobial resistance. The cornerstone of our research strategy is to make scientific breakthroughs in mechanisms of disease, which we aim to translate to innovative therapeutics to improve patient outcomes and informed treatment stratification. To facilitate this, our research endeavours are organized around three themes, including Immunobiology and Microbes, Respiratory Medicine, and Vision and Vascular Medicine, which capture our current strengths and foster collaborations. Research at the CEM incorporates an integrated mixture of expertise and technologies ranging from molecular cell biology, immunology, disease phenotyping, imaging, genetic epidemiology, functional genomics, unique pre-clinical models of disease, and patient-based investigation and clinical trials to deliver our translational impact.
