We live in the Century of Biology. Many of the challenges that we will have to overcome as a society have to do with the stresses we are placing on the living resources and ecosystems on which we rely. Much of our advantage will come from a deeper understanding of biology gained from rapid developments in informatics and technology.
The School of Biological Sciences plays a leading role in this Century of Biology. Our strengths lie across the fields of genomics, informatics, emerging infectious diseases, ecology and conservation biology. And we excel in the integration of these under our strategy entitled 'Adaptation and change in emerging environments'. These strengths are underpinned by researchers who not only are global leaders in their fields, but are also re-investing their knowledge through exceptional student training at undergraduate and graduate levels.
