Popular Life Science Research Areas

Universities undertake a huge variety of life science research. Often in partnership with commercial companies, or striving to commercialise the results themselves.

But what are the most popular categories of research? At Marketwise, we categorize every contact against over 100 possible research areas.  This is primarily so our customers can better target an email campaign, however some interesting findings also result.

Top 5 Diseases researched

The top diseases researched by universities are:

    • Cardiovascular
    • Respiratory diseases
    • Cancer (it should be noted that we sub-divide into nine further categories, such as breast, lung, bowel and so on)
    • Alzheimers & Dementia
    • Arthritis

Top Techniques used by life scientists

Of the many different tools / techniques used by scientists, the clear favourites are:

    • Chromatography
    • Gene Expression
    • Flow Cytometry
    • Mass Spectrometry
    • ELISA

Regional variations in University research

Rather than the original global search, below we ran three regional based queries, Europe, North America and Asia (including AUS and NZ). Some differences are apparent, perhaps reflecting the regional focus and also of course, our available data. Click the images below for a larger view.
