We research how cellular and molecular processes combine to regulate the development and functioning of animals and plants.
Department of Biology & Biochemistry research
We are one of the leading research-intensive biosciences departments in the UK.
Our research focuses on a fundamental understanding of the molecular processes of life, especially those involved in health and disease.
We address questions related to the origins and mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, disease epidemiology and evolution.
Our research covers issues across the temporal and spatial scales.
Scientists at the Milner Centre for Evolution looked at the evolution of the virus that causes Covid19; their findings could help the design of a new vaccine.
CiteAb, a new impartial citation-based search engine, is shaking up the $2 billion antibody industry.
Bath researchers collaborate with Sapience Therapeutics to find new treatments for cancer cell targets that don't respond to other drugs.
Bath scientists have discovered a series of protein structures that are thought to be highly relevant to the onset of Parkinson’s disease.
For the first time, scientists have added microscopic tracking devices into the interior of living cells, giving a peek into how development starts.
Overuse of antibiotics, high animal numbers and low genetic diversity from intensive farming increase the risk of animal pathogens transferring to humans.
We are a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
We translate living systems into mathematical models in order to make quantitative predictions and inform biological experiments.
Our mission is to improve cancer patient outcomes by fostering links between Bath’s scientists and clinicians.
Our research focuses on all parts of the bioprocess from fundamental biology to industrial scale-up, addressing challenges in food, sustainability and health.
We develop technologies to improve biomedical diagnosis, environmental monitoring, industrial bio-processes and our understanding of biological functions.
We transform innovation, arisen from basic research, to diagnostics and prognostics, medicines design and delivery, leading to personalised medicine.
An interdisciplinary research centre for the modelling and analysis of complex interacting systems.
The Institute for Mathematical Innovation delivers multi-disciplinary and mathematically grounded research for real-world, societal and industrial challenges.
A multidisciplinary centre that brings together researchers with a strong interest in sustainability.
We combine cutting-edge analytical equipment with extensive in-house expertise to provide a comprehensive material and chemical characterisation service.
This GW4 facility is located in Bristol and provides access to cryo-microscopy and analysis tools to study molecular processes responsible for cell function.
SWBio DTP in food security & bioscience trains PhD students in the biosciences for leadership positions in academia, industry and beyond.
The GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership aims to develop both medical and non-medical students into the next generation of medical researchers.
NERC GW4+ DTP in environmental sciences is a community of Earth, Environmental and Life Scientists.
Find out about our PhD degrees, funding opportunities and how to apply.
We support and enrich the experience of our doctoral researchers and play a key role in developing policy and strategy relevant to doctoral study.
