Our objectives are for the Institute to be the outwardly facing image of Life Sciences for the whole University, to form a single port of call for interested parties and to project the extraordinary talent pool the University has in Life Sciences and related endeavours. We seek to establish co-ordinated cross campus research activities and build critical mass by collaboration and recruitment in areas of strength and need. To achieve this the Life Sciences community will play a critical role.
