College of Life Sciences and Medicine
More than 3,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world belong to the College of Life Sciences and Medicine, a dynamic research-led centre with first class teaching.
Building bridges between science and everyday life: the College’s work goes from laboratory to bedside in applying science to improving healthcare, and in realising the commercial potential of science ideas with outputs ranging from pharmacology to fish immunology.
The College is organised into four schools:
It also has a Graduate School available for postgraduate studies. This offers an excellent environment for both taught and research qualifications, and provides students with a culture of excellence in teaching and research.
BSc, MSc and PhD programmes attracting high quality students cover the range of life science subjects including popular, long-standing courses in Zoology and Biomedical Sciences and newer ones such as Drug Development.
Research activity in the college is organised into four research institutes:
Major investment has taken place to create flagship facilities for research within deep sea science at Oceanlab, and the Matthew Hay Project which has created the Suttie Centre for Teaching and Learning in Healthcare for medical students and health professionals.
25 years ago we led the world with MRI imaging - today our medical breakthroughs include a potential new treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and new insights in the fight against superbugs.
Many of our researchers are international leaders in their fields - these include experts in, for example, bone and fungal disease, women’s health, human and fish immunology and climate change.
