The School of Biological Sciences (SBS) has about 44 permanent academic staff. We have benefited from substantial recent investment in research facilities and infrastructure, including the
Institute for Cardiovascular & Metabolic Research and the newly completed Hopkins Building.
Our research interests span the broad scope of modern biology, from individual molecules to global biodiversity and sustainability, and we emphasise cross-disciplinary and quantitative approaches.
These activities fall within the two main research sections of the School:
- Biomedical Sciences (BM)
These provide key research themes that focus on our main strengths in Environmental Biology and Biomedical Science. SBS researchers obtain funding and attract high-quality postgraduate students from many sources in the UK and overseas.
