Research practice at the University of Sunderland is stitched into the very fabric of the institution.

For almost 100 years, researchers at the University have been challenging themselves and their subject in order to improve society across all its facets – from the early days of pharmacy to the support for heavy industry at its height, through to today's new sciences and advanced technologies.
