Sciences

  • research in all scientific areas rated world leading in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE)
  • our interdisciplinary approach crosses traditional subject boundaries and we offer postgraduate study in a range of scientific disciplines
  • internationally recognised sciences faculty

Sussex offers exciting research opportunities for postgraduate study in a wide variety of related scientific disciplines. The University has been home to the research of three Nobel Prize winners in science and the winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize (in biosciences). We also currently have 14 Fellows of the Royal Society on our staff.

Sussex offers many opportunities for research and activity that cross subject boundaries both within the sciences and across the University to the arts and social sciences. One of the driving forces in our current research is the interdisciplinary approach to the pursuit of knowledge at the important interfaces between subjects.

Enhancing health and well-being

The research of Professor Louise Serpell, Professor of Biochemistry at Sussex, seeks to elucidate the basis for protein assembly both for functional roles and in pathological processes. The aim is to better understand the process of neuronal toxicity associated with disease in order, ultimately, to improve treatment and prognosis.
