About Leicester-Discoveries

The University's research plays an important role in a changing world. Here we provide some of the key research that seeks to address the problems of a changing world. From the invention of genetic fingerprinting, pioneering space explorations through to our search for King Richard III - our work is world leading and impactful. Our Global Challenges are a way in which this work from across the University comes together to really make a difference to everyone involved in the process and the world beyond. These are our Global Challenges. No matter if our researchers are using a microscope or a telescope, an ancient text or a super computer, working on galactic or a sub atomic scale – their work will be contributing to progress against one of these challenges.
