For the first time, we’ve brought together researchers in the life, earth and environmental sciences in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences to research the biggest issues facing our planet.

Our excellent life sciences research and teaching are shaping new approaches required to address a range of increasingly important challenges faced by the world that span a range of disciplinary areas, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria, maintaining ecosystems, and food security.

Major initiatives include curriculum renewal of life, earth and environmental sciences coursework across the sciences, and bringing together scientists from multiple disciplines to address global challenges.
