Biological Sciences

Business and partnership

Biological Sciences is proud of its strong links with business and industry. Our research is carried out with partners in industries ranging from food to pharmaceuticals. We also work with local authorities, government agencies and others interested in our research findings.

As well as offering student industry placements, several companies support PhD research in Biological Sciences. We are also able to offer our world-class facilities for contract research work, often through Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering ('CASE') schemes.

Our entrepreneurial approach has seen excellent results, putting our research achievements into the commercial arena. Three of the 12 companies spun out of the University since 2000 started life in our labs.
