Athena SWAN bronze award logo

We are proud to have achieved the Athena SWAN Bronze Departmental Award in November 2014, recognising our commitment to promoting a positive and inclusive environment for our community of students and staff.

Our strong research focus has helped to establish widely recognised research networks. These networks are essential for us to address major scientific areas in environmental biology, marine and microbial sciences, plant biology, molecular biophysics, molecular medicine and sports and exercise science.

The Centres, groups and units all contribute to our multidisciplinary approach to biological science and provide an excellent basis to inform either undergraduate or postgraduate study.
