About the IMSR

The Institute for Metabolism and Systems Research (IMSR) is based at the University of Birmingham. The IMSR’s vision is to positively change lives and advance knowledge through innovative metabolism, maternal health and hormone research.

We Are IMSR is our blog which features stories, news and information about our public and patient engagement and involvement activities and events. If you are interested in detailed information about our research or the teaching we offer, please visit our main site: www.birmingham.ac.uk/IMSR

Meet the IMSR’s Community Action Team, who help organize and plan some of the institute-wide engagement and involvement activity in the IMSR, such as our We Are IMSR Community Day.
