Study with us
The Institute of Metabolic Science offers a world class environment
for research in obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
My time at the IMS has provided me with a truly broad skill set and provided me with a scientific network within which to build my future scientific career.
I really like the freedom I have within the project to think about how to answer challenging questions and to design sensible experiments.
A world-leading institute in metabolic research
- At the forefront of international efforts to understand the interrelated problems of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
- Excellent core facilities and a Wellcome Discovery Research Platform, bringing together state-of-the-art equipment with specialised expertise.
- A big emphasis on research culture and wellbeing.
- A lively and diverse student community
A thriving student community
Our students contribute greatly to both the stimulating research environment and the life of the Institute as a whole.
One of the things I really like about the IMS is its friendly student community. Our students committee organizes all kinds of social events, pub nights, cake clubs, the annual student symposium, data and journal clubs.
