The University of Southampton
Institute for Life Sciences

Life Sciences are central to our wellbeing, the economy and the protection of an environment critical to our survival. The University of Southampton is at the forefront of approaches to address these global challenges.

Life Sciences at Southampton breaks the traditional mould of solving problems within the confines of a discipline.  We have an established reputation for working collaboratively, taking disruptive approaches and risk through interdisciplinary team science.

We focus on four areas of excellence: the challenge themes of Health and Medicine, and Living Systems, supported by the cross-cutting themes Disruptive Life Technologies and Insights through Data, which provide the advanced tools to drive our understanding at the frontiers.
