Our world-class bioscience research addresses major global challenges.
Grounded in excellent fundamental science, our research spans the discipline and generates solutions for a sustainable green future and a healthy human population.
I love working in biology at York. There is a strong sense of community among the staff and students. We work collaboratively, encourage innovation and curiosity in research and in teaching, and have a strong sense of responsibility to do what we all can to tackle the grand challenges that the world faces.
