The world faces unprecedented challenges to sustain ecosystems and keep its growing population healthy. Bioscience has a crucial role to play in understanding the underlying mechanisms and researching solutions.
Our research ranges across the biological and biomedical sciences and is led by internationally renowned researchers running dynamic research programmes with access to state-of-the-art technology facilities.
Our key areas of focus include:
- global change and its impacts
- molecular mechanisms of life and disease
- modelling and engineering living systems.
Our research is organised into four divisions:
In addition to the above, we also have an active Education and Scholarship division.
We are ranked 13th in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, with 60% of our research deemed 'outstanding' for its impact in terms of its reach and significance.
In the 2019 Academic Ranking of World Universities (based on research strength and performance), Biological Sciences at Cardiff University was ranked in the top 25 worldwide and the top 5 in the UK.
