About us

Welcome to Southampton Academy of Research (SoAR). We support health professionals and scientists in Southampton to explore and pursue a career that incorporates health-related research. 


We provide a focal point for career development and training for those who aspire to, or already work in, biomedical and applied health research. Whether you are a nurse, doctor, midwife, allied health professional, pharmacist, healthcare scientist, or health research-related scientist, we can help you.

We guide you through your options in research, and signpost to people who can offer advice or be a mentor. We also highlight events, funding and training opportunities for people at every stage of their career.

We work closely with the University of Southampton's Faculty of Medicine and School of Health Sciences. This ensures we have the joint policies and processes to support you in making your next career step.
