The School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences brings together world-class researchers with expertise in neurobiology, psychology, immunology, genetics, and cellular and molecular biology, as well as organic, medicinal, inorganic and materials chemistry. 

Our research benefits from modern laboratories based at our central Milton Keynes campus. Our facilities include core qPCR, gel docs, FACS, time-lapse imaging and microinjection equipment. The School houses a fully-equipped histology suite, and facilities for bright-field, DIC, wide-field and confocal fluorescence microscopy as well as a renowned electron microscopy facility available to all research groups. We also have centrally managed analytical facilities and cell and tissue culture laboratories up to containment level 3.

Our research is organised into five clusters. Click on the images below to find out more about each cluster
