The School of Biological Sciences provides research programmes in areas spanning from basic biochemistry with applications in e.g. cancer research, all the way to the economic evaluation of ecosystem services and the retailing of food. We host a cutting edge scientific research team and contribute to genuine new discoveries and the development of new methods of practical use.
UN-approved Global Research Institute (GRI)
Much of our PGR & post-doc research is carred out via IGFS, one of four interdisciplinary GRIs at Queen's established to tackle global challenges - in this case, the integrity of food systems. In 2021, the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) designated IGFS an IAEA Collaborating Centre.
