Four key research themes Four key research themes

In BIO our research area is divided into four main themes: 

  • Organisms and the Environment  - we address fundamental evolutionary and ecological questions by studying a variety of species and systems in both the lab and the field. 
  • Cells and Tissues - the cells and tissues theme aims at understanding tissue specification and function in health and disease
  • Molecular Microbiology - the molecular microbiology theme addresses fundamental aspects of microbiology and microbial biochemistry
  • Plant Sciences - the plant sciences theme has broad interests, which address many aspects of plant biology and includes groups in The Sainsbury Laboratory.
