Our single school, single faculty structure promotes international excellence in education and teaching by removing barriers to collaboration and communication. Novel educational and research interactions are encouraged across research groups.
The biological focus of Life Sciences has served as a pivot for collaborations with staff in the physical and engineering sciences, both within and outside the University. Certain thematic research areas have resulted in a formalisation of groups of researchers within recognised research centres and institutes. Centres and institutes work to bring together staff from the Faculty of Life Sciences and other Faculties.
The ethos in the Faculty of Life Sciences is that all staff play critical roles in the current and future success of the Faculty. The Management of the Faculty is overseen by the Faculty Management Team.
