Centre for Instrumentation and Analytical Science

Instrumentation and Analytical Science carries out research and development of new measurement techniques with funding from UK Research Councils, The European Commission, charities and industry.

This theme brings together a multidisciplinary team that researches new measurement techniques and develops instrumentation to carry out those measurements in areas ranging from molecular processes in living cells to chemical processes in industrial reactors.

Research areas include environmental monitoring.

The Centre for the Genetics of Ecosystem Services

The Centre brings together researchers from within the Faculty of Life Sciences with expertise in ecosystem service measurement and ecological community genetics. This fusion of expertise allows us to answer fundamental questions linking genetic variation and evolutionary processes to the functioning of biotic communities and the delivery of fundamental ecosystem services.

The Centre aims to work collaboratively with other academics, industries and government bodies to address both the fundamental science and the societal impact of ecosystem services.

Computational and Evolutionary Biology

We are a department-sized grouping of researchers in Life Sciences who use a wide range of techniques from computational to whole organism experimental approaches in our pursuit of understanding biological systems. A main theme of our research is the use of an evolutionary perspective to inform and predict the behaviour of biological systems.
