children extracting DNA at open day


In collaboration with the Research Institutes in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences , the School of Life Sciences is developing a relationship with a number of schools and colleges in Liverpool and the surrounding area, to support schools’ activities in the following ways:

  • Provision of high-quality speakers on biological topics
  • Talks about studying biology at university and possible careers
  • School and college visits to our labs and other facilities
  • Resource development through projects for undergraduate students in collaboration with schools
  • Christmas lectures
  • Visits for teachers

The Life Sciences students at Liverpool have formed a Student Society devoted to outreach activities and they will play an important role in the delivery of our activities.
