Academic excellence is one of our core values and we conduct research of international importance to shape our lives - from changing our understanding of farming practices to improved treatments for disease. This research also underpins teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level and provides opportunities for staff to undertake consultancy.
The Institute of Science and Environment is unique in providing research across disciplines including Biology, Geography (human and physical), Archaeology, Environmental Science, and Horticulture.
Ensuring science is accessible and that research is relevant to society, is vital.
