About the Life Sciences teams


The Life Science teams work with students and staff across all disciplines within the faculty to enhance teaching, research and enterprise in laboratory and field based activities. The teams have a comprehensive knowledge of techniques and procedures to undertake different types of analysis, preparation of class materials and have involvement in the design of new practical classes to be included into the teaching programme. They are divided into four specialist groups, Dental technology, Environmental Sciences, Microbiology, and Physiology.

The teams support a diverse range of subject areas and consequently the skills of the technical support staff reflect this. The highly qualified technicians manage a range of ‘state of the art’ laboratories, research areas and specialist facilities. Services and equipment are available to students and staff after initial induction, regardless of their course of study.
