School of Biomedical Sciences
The School is one of three in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at Leeds. It contains forty six academic staff (including independent research fellows) within two Research Groups – Integrative Membrane Biology and Cardiovascular & Sports Sciences. Interests are broad-ranging, from fundamental studies on the structures and functions of membrane proteins, to physiological questions in the mammalian cardiovascular and nervous systems - all the way to studies of health, exercise and disease in humans. Research is well-funded from numerous sources and there is an exciting and interactive environment for modern research relating to animal and human health, as well as access to cutting-edge research equipment including one of the first automated planar patch-clamp systems in academia. The research space has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The Faculty and the University as a whole operate low-wall principles for research groupings, centres and Schools with the aim of encouraging cross-disciplinary research and integrative approaches to big scientific questions. This places the School in a powerful scientific environment that encourages and supports research and research-training at the highest level.
