Staff within the Lincoln Institute for Health (LIH) undertake research which spans the pathway from ‘bench to bedside’ and ‘cell to community’. Our research focus encompasses biomedicine and disease (including molecular and cell biology), drug design and development (bench), and practice and policy related research into quality improvement in health and social care and the effective translation of research findings into clinical and professional practice (bedside and community). All of our research is underpinned by the concept of the Lincoln ‘Living Lab’ – creating and conducting responsive research in partnership with service users, health practitioners and organisations, industry and policy makers.
The LIH conducts internationally excellent and world-class research to develop innovative health and social care technologies, treatments and improve health systems. In the recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessment, the LIH was ranked 9th out of 98 UK University submissions for the quality of the research conducted by its researchers.
