The Faculty of Life Sciences has a global reputation in research that spans from
molecules, cells and whole organisms to populations and the environment. We were
in the top three Biology groupings in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. Our research is arranged into 12 thematic Research Groups, and we use cross-disciplinary approaches to address major biological problems of global significance.
Our 13 thematic Research Groups are the hub of our research activities. They consist of
principal investigators and fellows with complementary research interests.
