Formally accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, Biological Sciences encompasses many aspects of the biosciences, from molecules to ecosystems and includes exploration of: Biological diversity, systematics and conservation, Cell and tissue structure, function and physiology, Ecology and behaviour, Form and function of microorganisms, protists, fungi, plants and animals, and Genetics and mechanisms and pathways of evolution.
Join us on one of our UK-leading undergraduate programmes located in our state-of-the-art building, providing world class facilities to help grow our life sciences sector, especially in areas such as agriculture/food science, food safety, disease/infection biology, diagnostics, waste management, ecosystems and the environment.
Formally accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, Zoology is the study of animals, from the simplest invertebrates to the largest land or marine mammals. Simple animals often provide models for the study of higher, more complex species (including humans) and help drive basic research that transcends the subject boundaries.
Dr Connor Bamford studied a BSc in the School of Biological Sciences and now is a Research Fellow in Virology and Antiviral Immunity at the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine. He is currently working on research which investigates already licenced therapies to be used in the clinic to block COVID-19 and any damaging inflammation.
"The covid-19 crisis has really reinforced the importance of learning Biology and Microbiology throughout school and university."
