Organisation profile

Our research addresses a range of the important challenges in the life sciences.

From tackling ecosystem and global change, to innovation in fundamental biosciences for better human, animal, plant and ocean health.

From understanding animal and human behaviour and wellbeing, to developing future synthetic biotechnologies and so driving the UK's bioeconomy.

We are changing the way we understand the fundamental principles of life and the natural world through a series of interrelated research themes.

Underpinning these research themes is a world class state-of-the-art infrastructure for Imaging, 'Omics and informatics and Responsible research and innovation.
