As part of the Norwich Research Park, which includes the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Institute of Food Research and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust, the School of Biological Sciences offers an outstanding environment in which to carry out research across the whole of the life sciences.
Currently the Norwich Research Park
houses over 300 research postgraduates in the life sciences. Research
in the School is supported by grants and contracts of ca £34 million and the School’s laboratories most of which have recently been refurbished are equipped to the highest standards. We have strong collaborations with our other affiliated institutes which include the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science
(CEFAS) and the British Trust for Ornithology
Research in the school is organised into three general themes: cells and tissues
, molecules and pathways
and organisms and the environment
. We offer a range of postgraduate research courses which will enable you to follow your interests to a high academic standard.
World Class Future Science
Norfolk is home to a cluster of internationally-renowned research organisations. They are working together to tackle the major challenges facing all of us in the 21st Century – the sustainability of our environment; our food supplies and healthy ageing. There are over 2500 scientists working to find realistic and practical solutions; who then have the infrastructure and support to translate these discoveries into commercially successful business.
