The academic unit of Forensic Medicine and Science at the University of Glasgow encompasses the two disciplines: Forensic Pathology and Forensic Toxicology. Both are primarily service-based but with additional involvement in teaching and research.

The unit is now the longest established academic forensic institution in the United Kingdom (founded 1839), probably the largest, and one of the few to combine pathology and toxicology under one roof.
