About Us

Our Vision: To become an integrated world-renowned Centre for integrated therapeutic innovation with patient engagement

The Centre for Therapeutic Innovation at the University of Bath is within the Faculty of Science and incorporates eight Departments (Physics, Biology and Biochemistry, Pharmacy and Pharmacology, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics and Civil Engineering) across the University.

The main objective of CTI is facilitating Therapeutics (diagnostics and quantitative prognosis) by focusing on inflammation and immunoncology pathologies, under the umbrella of ‘immunotherapy”. This will be achieved by complete patient engagement in a fully integrated translational, industrial and clinical environment.

Its ultimate goal is to become an integrated world-renowned Centre for holistic therapeutic innovation with patient engagement.
