About Us

Our Vision: to become an integrated internationally renowned Centre for holistic precision medicine and innovation.

The Centre for Therapeutic Innovation at the University of Bath is within the Faculty of Science and incorporates nine Departments (Life Sciences, Computational Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Chemistry, Health, Management, Mathematics and Physics) across the University.

The main objective of CTI is to bring in precision from the physical and mathematical sciences to facilitate translational research that will lead to personalised medicine. The Centre’s aim is to specifically focus on quantitative diagnostics and prognostics for multiple pathologies. Our objective will be achieved by collaborating closely with various types of industrial ventures, national and international hospitals. Various types of companies from the Industrial Sector will be welcome to join us as partners to engage as collaborators with the CTI’s Research Team.
