School of Life Sciences

Our Research Groups

The School of Life Sciences is the main focus for biological and biomedical research at the University.

Our aims are delivered by four divisions, which reflect our research strengths and represent disciplines in which we have critical mass. Each division promotes individual excellence, fosters team science and multidisciplinary activity, and encourage international collaboration in the pursuit of world changing research.
