This board supports mechanistic and applied research relating to the physiology and pathophysiology of major human organs and systems, including population health and the impact of environmental factors on health and development across the life course.
The aim of this programme is to support and fund research that will identify patients or subgroups of patients with distinct mechanisms of disease or particular responses to treatments, helping ensure that the right patient gets the right treatment at the right time.
This research area covers the design, operation, modelling, control and optimisation of chemical, physical and biological bulk-product processes that are conducted continuously or repeatedly.
This research area explores the design of programming languages, development of the relevant mathematical theories, the processing of these and the generation of code.
Since 2017 Prosperity Partnerships have become EPSRC’s flagship approach to co-investing with business in long-term, use-inspired basic research.
ESRC supports initiatives that ensure data can help to deliver effective public services, including collection of new data and helping researchers and other decision makers to access the wealth of data that already exists.
Quantum devices, components and systems involve the creation, control and manipulation of quantum states to design systems with functionality that could not be achieved in a non-quantum world.
This research area focuses on the theoretical and experimental study of superfluids (typically helium), encompassing investigation of a range of their properties.
Understanding and control of the behaviour and interactions of light and matter in terms of quantum mechanics in optical and atomic systems, and the fundamental science of generation, use and manipulation of quantum information.
This programme demonstrates how the application of quantum technologies will advance the understanding of fundamental physics questions, such as:
