University of dundee life sciences
Professor Julian Blow, Dean of School welcomes you to the School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee.
The University of Dundee is one of the leading universities in Europe for research in Life Sciences. The 2016 QS World University Rankings in Biological Sciences place Dundee 5th in the UK and 40th in the world as judged by ‘citations-per-paper’, one of the most widely recognized metrics of scientific excellence. The School enjoys a reputation as one of the most dynamic international centres for molecular cell biology, with outstanding laboratory and technology facilities.
Interdisciplinary and translational research is actively encouraged within the School with our researchers working with others across the University along with external institutions with the aim to produce excellence with impact.
We are committed to training and supporting scientists at every stage of their careers through our PhD programmes, equality and diversity initiatives and the recruitment and career development of researchers. Much of this work is supported by schemes available through our Institutional Strategic Support Fund from Wellcome.
At Dundee we are proud to offer undergraduate degrees in Life Sciences that are directly informed by the excellence of our research. All our 22 degree titles have received Royal Society of Biology Accreditation, which is more than any other University in the UK. Last year we saw a 12% increase in overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey.
