Institute for Life Sciences

First in-kind soft tissue optimised micro-computed tomography scanner in Southampton for 3D X-ray histology.

We bring together researchers with expertise across the themes of health and medicine, living systems, disruptive life technologies, and insights through data. We have an established reputation for working collaboratively, taking disruptive approaches and risk through interdisciplinary team science.

Our aim is to take a strategic approach to building connected networks with interdisciplinary collaboration at the heart of the life sciences community. Our mission is to facilitate fusions of expertise in research and education from a range of disciplines to broaden scientific opportunities and address key issues in health, society, and enterprise.
