The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences

Research menu


The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences is home to an active, cutting-edge research programme. Our research staff are engaged in a wide range of ground-breaking projects that span and combine the chemistry and life science disciplines.

Much of this work is made possible by the wide range of in-house analytical services and core facilities. Research activity is also extended and supported by a range of collaborative research centres.

Funding comes from a variety of research councils and institutions including the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Council (EPSRC), the European Research Council (ERC), The Royal Society and The Leverhulme Trust.



The school runs a number of seminars, discussion groups and research events open to students, staff and external visitors.


Research activity in the school is split into four divisions: Biological and Experimental Psychology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology and Organismal Biology.

Within the four divisions there are groups of researchers focused on more specific topics, each group has an internationally renowned research output:
