The University of Southampton
Institute for Life Sciences

Our vision

Our vision for Life Sciences is to develop excellent interdisciplinary researchers and research outputs and link to challenging and rewarding educational opportunities with global impact.

Life Sciences represents a powerful, excellent, diverse and interdisciplinary component of University business.  

The Institute for Life Sciences acts as a hub for funding opportunities and studentships available from sponsors focused on interdisciplinary research projects. 

Our strength lies in the interdisciplinary collaborative network which is made up of over 300 academic Members and represents all of the University's faculties. 

We encourage and supports interdisciplinary research projects and believe that sponsoring PhD students will bring new areas of expertise.  There is a rolling programme of studentships available to IfLS Members each academic year.  In addition, other sources of funding, such as the Higher Education Innovation Fund provide additional mechanisms for interdisciplinary pilot projects.

We provide networking opportunities and access to resources and facilities.  A varied programme of conferences, seminars, workshops and poster sessions provide exciting environments for researchers to explore novel approaches to existing research and cross pollinate ideas.

We welcome new members and collaborations.
