The University of Wolverhampton is a leading modern university with a tradition of providing opportunity and academic excellence dating back nearly 190 years. The University has a dynamic research community with a thirst for knowledge. Research underpins learning, teaching and business at the University and is at the heart of everything it does. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), the University of Wolverhampton achieved its best ever results with 41% of the submission graded as world-leading or internationally excellent; and the university offer researchers an outstanding research environment to carry out their project. The University of Wolverhampton strives to attract and nurture talented scholars across the world, delivering cutting-edge research emerging the STEM disciplines. The University’s Research Investment Fund (RIF) is an annual allocation of £2 million committed to a series of strategic projects and initiatives over a 3 year period, designed to enhance our research excellence and support the periodic Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessments. RIF4 is now running and will cover the period from 2020 to 2023. Notable results of this research drive have included: the establishment of the UK’s leading centre in War Studies; key work on brain signal responses in Parkinson’s disease sufferers and the development of a coating for probiotics to enable better absorption in the gut.
