Life Sciences

Our research is informed by a clear vision to address some of the biggest challenges facing human and animal health and welfare, with studies ranging from molecular and cellular mechanisms to whole organisms. Faculty research is focused on the following areas, many of which tie into University-wide research:

  • Animal Welfare and Behaviour
  • Cancer Biology
  • Cardiovascular Science
  • Dynamic Cell Biology
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Musculoskeletal Science
  • Neuroscience
  • Molecular Biosciences

Multidisciplinary collaborations demonstrate the faculty's commitment to translating its expertise in fundamental biomedical research from bench to bedside and from farm to fork.

As well as being home to the MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity and Bristol Neuroscience, our researchers are affiliated to the Bristol CardioVascular and the Severnside Alliance for Translational Research.
