Today the UK Funding Bodies have published the outcomes of the recent national research assessment exercise, the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021.

REF is the UK-wide assessment of research in universities, and provides an expert evaluation of the quality of the research outputs, impact and environment at subject level in each university.

Research in the Medical Sciences Division (MSD) was in most cases submitted to four of REF's Units of Assessment (UAO), with NDORMS submitted under Clinical Medicine (UOA1). Over 90% of the outputs were assessed as being world-leading or internationally-excellent (4* or 3*).
