We have an active and expanding research programme based on our three research centres: Biomedical Sciences; Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour; and Plant Molecular Sciences. Our stimulating research environment has more than 30 permanent members of academic staff, 30 postdoctoral Research Fellows and Assistants and around 40 postgraduate students, all housed in well-equipped laboratories. 

 

Research in the School of Biological Sciences is broadly grouped into 3 main research themes.
