ABOUT THE TEAM
The Department of Applied Sciences, which specialises in biological and chemical sciences, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students on professionally accredited degrees in the disciplines of Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Science, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Food Science & Nutrition and Forensic Science. We have over 80 academics researching in these areas, working with 60 PDRAs, research fellows and PhD students, and a thriving undergraduate population of approximately 1,500 students. The Department has a history of impactful inter-disciplinary subject research, often in collaboration with industry and supported through UKRI funding. With 86% of our staff submitted to REF2021, we were delighted to say that 82% of the Department’s publications were rated as internationally excellent and world-leading. More than 60 colleagues in the Department were part of our REF2021 submission to the Allied Health Unit of Assessment 3 which was ranked 8th (out of 91) in the UK for Research Power. In addition, our Research Environment was given the highest possible rating of 100% 4* - acknowledging our excellence in this area and state of the art facilities for performing research. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of our Department, academics were also returned in Units of Assessment for Engineering, Geography & Environmental Studies, and Law thus illustrating the breadth of collaborative opportunities within the Department and wider university.
