Research

Research in Applied Sciences is centred around five research groups. These groups address a broad range of subjects from chemical sciences to microbiological and biomedical sciences, including nutrition and food research, often supported by multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborative approaches. 

Much of this work is underpinned by molecular methods and an integrated ‘multi-Omics’ approach, enabled by our outstanding facilities for genomics, metabolomics and proteomics. Researchers in Applied Sciences also contribute to the University’s multidisciplinary research theme (MDRT) ‘Biodesign for the Bioeconomy’.
