Organisation profile

The Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine is committed to research excellence and is further enhancing the reputation of Queen’s University and Northern Ireland as a hub of innovation.


The Institute brings together world-class researchers, experts in the fields of immunology, microbiology, molecular and cell biology and clinical trials. Their collective focus is to understand why patients develop diseases and to make the discoveries which will lead to new therapies and improvements in their quality of life.


In particular, our research concentrates on the eye and circulatory system, inflammatory diseases of the lung and microbial (bacterial/viral) infections.


Collaboration is critical. We believe that our key strength is our approach to research – scientists and health professionals from different fields working together to tackle global health challenges from new perspectives. The Wellcome-Wolfson building has been designed to allow that to happen.


At the heart of everything we do is the goal of finding meaningful treatment for patients, making it work and having a local and global impact.
