A recent amalgamation of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 2004 created the University of Manchester. With a student population of about 40,000 students across four faculties (Engineering and the Physical Sciences, Humanities, Life Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences), the University of Manchester is the largest single-site university in Britain. The university has 13 institutes including the Brooks World Poverty Institute, the Manchester Cancer Research Institute, and the Sustainable Consumption Institute. A total of 25 Nobel Prize winners are associated with the university and its predecessors. The university has several noteworthy facilities including the Jodrell Bank Observatory, containing radio telescopes that study such phenomenon in the cosmos as Cosmic Background Radiation, gravitational lenses and pulsars. The Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre studies bioscience topics such as biofuels, synthetic and chemical biology.
