Teaching and research in the School of Biological Sciences spans the scale and breadth of the living world - from molecules, genes and cells; organisms and their environments; to broad landscapes that cover Earth.
We go back in time to understand how evolution has shaped the present world, and into the future, developing new technologies to improve human health and better manage our environment.
The school brings together outstanding teachers and world-leading researchers to provide undergraduate and postgraduate programs and research training in biomedical sciences and biotechnology (biochemistry, genetics, microbiology and immunology), evolution, ecology and environmental science.
