About us

The University of Liverpool has been teaching and researching Life Sciences for over 100 years. Our scientists and students have helped deliver many scientific breakthroughs and continue to do so using innovative techniques and technologies.

The School of Life Sciences offers world-class, inspirational research-led education across the full life science spectrum, including biomedical sciences, whole organismal biology, molecular genetics, infection and microbiology, structural biology, biological chemistry, ecology and evolution.

We aim to make you an expert in one particular field, whilst offering the freedom to cross discipline boundaries. This combination of strengths is highly attractive to prospective employers. Students will tackle the issues that dominate today’s society, such as food security, global warming, new energy sources, and the treatment of plant, animal and human diseases.

New technological developments in genome sequencing and bioinformatics are providing fresh insights across Life Sciences, and the demand for graduates in these areas of science is extremely high.
