The School of Biological Sciences was recognised in the most recent research assessment (Research Excellence Framework, 2014) for the high proportion of world-leading and internationally excellent research.

World class research by internationally-renowned academics

We have an active research programme based on our three major research centres:
Biomedical Sciences; Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour; and Plant Molecular Sciences

Within Biomedical Sciences, we also have the Centre of Gene and Cell Therapy and the Institute of Cardiovascular Research.

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 working and studying in well-equipped laboratories.

Our research is addressing global challenges, such as the POSHBee consortium led by Professor Mark Brown.
