We’re one of the leading modern universities in the UK for research, and many of our teaching staff are world leaders in their field.
At UEL, we stand for academic excellence, creative thinking and inspirational teaching. Our academics being their research into the classroom, ensuring that what you learn represents the very latest thinking in your subject.
For example, Dr Joanne Tocher, who teaches in our School of Health, Sport and Bioscience, specialises in researching new ways of treating cancer, specifically in chemotherapy and new drug development.
Students on our Human Biology course get first-hand experience in these research fields with the support from Dr Tocher and her team. For instance, one student concentrated her project on studies of new anti-cancer agents and had her findings published. Others have looked into the creation of new drugs from natural products, infection control and a new disease gene and presented their findings at conferences. And one of Joanne’s students has been assisting her studies into the role that ‘junk’ DNA plays in the human body.
At UEL you'll learn from the best. Join us at our Open Day and meet our highly-experienced academic staff.
