The School of Biosciences is a vibrant and stimulating environment for research and teaching

In the School of Biosciences, both undergraduate and postgraduate students are an integral part of our academic community. Our vibrant culture of innovation and discovery is based on excellence in research, pushing forward the frontiers of our knowledge in the biological sciences. From vaccine development to infection control, fundamental cell biology to drug development, cancer therapy to in vitro fertilisation, our research addresses 21st century real-world challenges of global significance.

Research also underpins our excellent undergraduate and postgraduate education. Students are taught and supported by experts, and our ethos is to inspire all of our students by drawing them in to this journey of discovery. Our students have many opportunities to participate in our research, developing their skills and future career opportunities while making their own contribution to our understanding of the biological sciences.
