At the forefront of interdisciplinary research and teaching in Life Sciences, the School is home to internationally recognised research scientists and high quality facilities.
Research in the School of Life Sciences ranges from molecular through cellular to the organism level and spans bacteria, viruses, fungi, protists, animals and plants. It is supported by state-of-the-art computational and experimental technologies. Studying this diversity allows us to identify many common principles that operate across the breadth of living systems.
Internationally recognised scientists undertake research in the following areas:
Molecular Systems Biology
Molecular Structure and Mechanism
Environmental Resource Management
Life Science research at Warwick is much broader than the School alone and our dynamic and highly motivated research groups work closely with Warwick Systems Biology, Warwick Medical School and the departments of Chemistry, Mathematics and Engineering (amongst others) to provide productive interdisciplinary collaborations and projects. Indeed, we have research projects and teaching links with every faculty in the University.
The Warwick Crop Centre is an integral part of Life Sciences and delivers high quality research and training for land-based industries.
Warwick offers a range of popular undergraduate and postgraduate degrees reflecting our expertise across a diversity of Life Sciences disciplines. Modern teaching laboratories and good teaching and learning support provide our students with flexible and relevant programmes and the opportunity to study alongside world-class researchers and academics.
In addition to taught and research degree courses, we offer a portfolio of professional development courses, including accredited modules for postgraduate awards and degrees.
