Making a difference
Our research has a real impact across many areas, addressing major global challenges, seeking to deliver new solutions with major economic, societal and environmental impact. Our work is underpinned by innovation, collaboration and sustainability, to provide the platform to produce internationally leading research.
Global change is causing freshwater species to be lost twice as fast as in any other ecosystem, and new research, which studied Welsh rivers and streams for over 30 years, has found that the number of specialist invertebrates are dwindling.
Research taking place in Wales could see the return of lost eagle species to our countryside, bringing both conservation and economic benefits.
Engaging the public
A key priority of the School of Biosciences is engagement and community outreach. We are committed to sharing our research to encourage the next generation of scientists and raise public awareness for research in the area of biosciences.
