Research that matters

Our research is making a positive, tangible impact on the world.

We're home to seven research institutes which focus on areas including sustainability, policing and crime, clinical and medical innovation, music therapy, and independence and quality of life in older age.

Alongside these institutes is a range of research groups, dedicated to subjects as diverse as eye diseases, ecology, finance and economics, cyber security, and political history.

Let our researchers introduce you to just some of the work that's going on at ARU.
