The School of Biological Sciences contains a vibrant research community with expertise that covers the full spectrum of biology.

Across our four research themes, we take an integrated approach, connecting biology at all scales, from molecules, genes and genomes to populations and ecological communities. We work on fundamental biological mechanisms and processes using state-of-the-art tools and approaches, with emphasis on developmental biology, biomedical research to elucidate health and disease, microbiology, evolutionary biology and ecology, conservation and plant biology.

Our study organisms cover microbial, plant and animal systems. Work from all our themes achieves strong impact, and we value our excellent industrial links. Our success rests on our broad expertise and supportive research culture, as well as our collaborations across the Norwich Research Park and beyond.
