World changing research

 

Breaking new ground to create a better world.

Exciting things happen here at Glasgow. For over five centuries, our passion, curiosity and ambition have advanced discoveries that have shaped the world.

Sir William Ramsey discovered Helium, James Watt harnessed steam power, and Sheila Rowan pioneered the discovery of gravitational waves.

Today we are shaping tomorrow’s world with breakthrough research and world-class teaching, developing new technologies to make a difference to people’s lives.

Our researchers are striving to answer some of the world’s most complex questions, such as how do we build sustainable and healthy cities for the future, how can we harness artificial intelligence to improve our lives, how do we cure Alzheimer's disease and what can we do to reduce global inequalities?

We can’t do this without your help. Your donation can create a better world.
