Our courses are research-led which mean students receive first-class teaching experiences which is complemented by high-specification facilities, and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and the Royal Society of Biology. Our degrees offer flexibility and placement opportunities.
In the latest REF, our research achieved world-leading status and is considered internationally leading, delivering real-world impact cases in health and technologies. To maintain our excellence in research, multi-million pound investment in staff, facilities and buildings will help the department to continue to expand its research provision for the future. Our transnational research themes are centred on: cancer biology, immunology and therapeutics; diabetes, chronic diseases and ageing; antimicrobial resistance, omics and microbiota; health of the environment; bioinformatics and biomathematics; education, enhancement and evaluation research; and practice development.
At undergraduate level, our bioscience courses are your gateway to life as a scientist, and at postgraduate level, you’ll develop specialist knowledge and skills to create your own learning pathway.
Our Research Groups
Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota (AROM)
Antimicrobial Resistance, Omics and Microbiota (AROM) research group incorporate classical microbiology, molecular biology, systems biology and bioinformatics.
Our Integrative Neurophysiology research team lead investigations into different areas of neuroscience, including neurodegeneration, neuropathy and pain, neuroendocrine regulation of energy balance and metabolism, and neurodevelopmental disease.
Our researchers are leading globally recognised research projects focussed on the key processes underpinning human diseases (including diabetes, obesity and cancers).
