The School of Life Sciences is active in a range of biomedical research topics, including cancer biology, microbial science, nutritional science and physiological science.
Students will carry out laboratory research using a wide range of laboratory equipment. Students will develop skills in hands-on (laboratory) skills, in addition to scientific writing, critical thinking, experimental design and quantitative (statistical) methods. Students will also be expected to submit their work for publication to scientific journals. In particular we support international and EU students in the generation of high quality data for submission to scientific journals in their field, which will then be recognised in their country of origin. Students will also present their findings to National (UK) and international conferences, and also to annual internal meetings of post-graduate students.
Students in Biomedical and Medical Research will have access to a wide range of scientific equipment and training.
Industrial placements may be available with a wide range of employers including pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. We also have links with medical schools in France, Germany, the USA and the UK, and collaborate closely with the Lincoln Health Trust on a number of research projects.
Main research areas are:
Cancer biology Microbial science Nutritional science Cardiovascular disease Diabetes mellitus.
