The School of Biological Sciences (BIO) contains a dynamic research community with expertise that covers the full spectrum of biology. We take a holistic approach to studying biological mechanisms by integrating genome information with pure and applied research on microbial, plant and animal systems, and ecological studies of populations.
In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), the School of Biological Sciences achieved major gains in the rankings of all of its research areas. 80% our our research output and 100% of our research environment and impact was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent.
Embedded with BIO is the Biomedical Research Centre (BMRC) which provides lab space for over 100 scientists from the School of Biological Sciences, Norwich Medical School and the School of Pharmacy.
