Academic Research Society


Welcome to Barts Academic Research Society (BARS)!

BARS is a student-led society committed to raise awareness and promote research opportunities. As part of that, we aim to proactively engages the student body, provide the fundamental skills and knowledge required for research, and bridge the gap between medical as well as dental students and physician-scientists for a simpler and more equal access to research at Barts and The London.

We are currently working on developing a Project Collaboration scheme, where you can apply to different projects offered by academics and clinicians allied with Barts!

Additionally, we provide support for various research-related academic tasks set by Barts and The London in the form of lectures and workshops.

BARS are affiliated with the National Student Association of Medical Research (NSAMR) (, a national student-led organisation that aims to encourage and support students in pursuit of a career in academic medicine.
