Research at Sussex
Our research is contributing new knowledge, ideas and solutions, which is leading to real change in the world and making a difference to people's lives.
Giving babies a better start
A baby’s birth can be an anxious time for any parent, but premature (or pre-term) babies are particularly vulnerable when they are born.
Now, thanks to research at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), the outlook for premature babies around the world is much brighter.
Using data to tackle biodiversity loss
How can we use small-scale data to see bigger patterns in biodiversity loss?
Professor Jörn Scharlemann's research has been instrumental in securing a ban on the international trade of pangolins, the world’s only scaly mammals threatened with extinction.
Computers that could change our lives
Scientists at Sussex have developed the world’s first blue print for building a quantum computer.
Treatment hope for brain tumours, say scientists
Sussex research may lead to the improvement of brain tumour treatments after scientists find how cancer forms drug resistance.
Security scanners could detect explosives
Physicists have created a blueprint using a single-pixel camera and Terahertz waves which could develop technologies across security and manufacturing.
