Welcome to the Impact pages of the University of Dundee School of Medicine website. 

The aim of these pages is to highlight the worldwide impact of the inspiring research, education, public engagement and economic activities being undertaken at the University. 

Pages illustrate the impact of members of staff from across the University community with national and international project partners.   I hope you enjoy reading the case studies which serve as a wonderful recognition of the work we have done to help transform lives locally and globally
