Life Sciences’ research activities are organised around the following five subject groups:
Making molecules with light to improve drug discovery
Brian Cox, Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Sussex, has set up a start-up company to carry out ground breaking research producing photochemically derived molecules, which could improve the success rates in drug discovery and help tackle neglected diseases.
Shining a light on the impact of pesticides on bees
Professor Dave Goulson and Professor Liz Hill’s research into the impact of pesticides on bumblebees has led governments to take action to better protect insects.
