Welcome to the School of Life Sciences
We cover a wide spectrum of biological and medical sciences in both teaching and research. Expertise in the school spans molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, pharmacology, physiology, anatomy and zoology.
Our aim is to achieve excellence in education, both with our undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and with the major contributions we make to professional courses in medicine, pharmacy and dietetics.
We also have a substantial research portfolio and strive to achieve research excellence across this range.
100% of UoA24 (Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism) and 84% of the UoA5 (Biological Sciences) research submitted to REF2021 was judged to be ‘world-leading’ (4*), or ‘internationally excellent’ (3*).
