Research interest groups

We operate interdisciplinary research groups across the School of Biosciences and beyond, bringing together expertise, knowledge and research areas.

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Biology

The Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Biology Network (CURE-Infection) addresses fundamental questions about infection biology - how pathogens are acquired, transmitted and evolve in an era of increasingly mobile human population, drug dependency and antimicrobial resistance.

Microbiomes, Microbes and Informatics

The Microbiomes, Microbes and Informatics special interest group investigates microbiological phenomena ranging from single cell molecular biology, to communities of organisms and their interactions with humans, animals, plants, and the wider environment.

The Sensor Physiotherapy Intervention Research Group

The Sensor Physiotherapy Intervention Research Group is active across a range of multidisciplinary projects to make positive changes to the delivery of healthcare management for musculoskeletal and diabetic conditions.

Biosensors and Advanced Imaging

The Biosensors and Advanced Imaging special interest group carries out research and engagement activities on new and emerging technologies in biosensing and bioimaging, including development of novel instrumentation, probes and quantitative data analysis tools.

Drosophila In-vivo Analysis

Within the Drosophila In-vivo Analysis group we have expertise in many cutting edge Drosophila techniques, and links to the broader UK and international fly communities. This generates an extremely supportive and well-informed training environment for our students and staff.

Plants for the Future Network

The Plants for the Future Network carries out applied and fundamental research and engagement on how plants develop, reproduce, and interact with a changing environment.
