Within our collaborative research community, the School offers an inspiring environment where researchers at all levels can produce their best work.
An impressive 93% of our active research staff submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework and 88% of this research was classed as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
Our research is focussed on biological processes at the molecular and cellular level and spans the disciplines of biochemistry, genetics, biotechnology and biomedical research. The five main research themes within the School are:
- Cancer and ageing
- Cellular architecture and dynamics
- Industrial biotechnology
- Infectious diseases
- Evolution, reproduction and genome organisation.
Each theme is supported by specialist facilities.
