A new home for teaching and research
The Faculty of Biological Sciences is undergoing a major refurbishment to develop its teaching and research capabilities. Creating highly-flexible state of the art laboratories, offices and study space, the investment will provide an exciting new environment for an outstanding student experience and for large multidisciplinary research teams from across multiple faculties to work together.
Below are some of the cross-faculty research centres within the University that draw together expertise, maximising potential for application of novel approaches to solve scientific problems.
Focusing on longer lasting joint replacements, tissue sparing interventions and biological scaffolds for tissue regeneration supported by computational and experimental simulation systems for design and pre-clinical testing.More on Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering
Our 10 facilities cover the broad research themes of biophysical characterisation, structural elucidation and cellular visualisation. They provide a full pipeline for preparation and complete characterisation of systems from single molecules, to macro-molecular complexes, to cells.
