Organisation profile

Part of the Institute of Health Research and Innovation, the Division is based at the Centre for Health Science in Inverness. We conduct extensive research, primarily into the causes and consequences of diabetes, but also into a wide range of clinical conditions; most notably cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. Led by Professor Ian Megson, the mission of the division is to undertake world class research into the causes and treatment of diabetes and the cardiovascular diseases that the condition precipitates.

The division also undertakes a range of contract research to support commercial entities of any size.

The division is home to the Free Radical Research Facility,  has research expertise in genetics and immunology, lipidomics, the Mass Spectrometry and Bioinformatics Facility and hosts the Active Health Exercise Lab.
