The research work of the school covers the full spectrum of the biosciences, from environmental and ecological to cellular and molecular, including medically-related molecular research. Research areas: animal physiology and behaviour with specialisations in: crustacean neuroendocrinology, growth, reproduction; environmental physiology of aquatic organisms; fish behaviour; integrative behavioural physiology/energetics; marine mammals/conservation genetics. Cellular and molecular with specialisations in: cancer research; cell biology; dna damage checkpoints; dna repair endothelial development; entomology eukaryote chromosome dynamics/repair; eukaryotic cell control cycle; forensic acarology; human neural differentiation and cancer; intracellular host-symbiont interactions; mechanisms of mammalian signal transduction; metabolic regulation; metal-microbe interaction; microbiology of extreme environments; molecular medical/vetinary entomology; molecular parasitology; neurodegenerative genetics; neuroscience; reproductive parasites and pathogens of invertebrates; vector biology. Ecology and evolution with specialisations in: ancient DNA and long-term environmental change; behavioural ecology; biofilms; biogeochemistry of aquatic ecosystems; conservation genetics; ecology of clonal animals; ecophysiology of aquatic organisms; effects of climate change; environmental biotechnology; evolution of venomous snakes and venom; evolutionary and population genetics; evolutionary ecology and phylogeography; fisheries genetics; geographic variation in lizards, snakes and amphibians; molecular and evolutionary ecology; molecular ecology and adaptation; plant ecology; wetland biogeochemistry; wetland ecology. Plant systems and technology with specialisations in: carbon partitioning; physiology and genetics of abiotic stress resistance; physiology of plant growth, cell wall proteins and genes; plant genomics and metabolomics; plant molecular biology; plant physiology and carbon partitioning; plant water relations; plant-rhizosphere interactions; single-cell transcriptomics and metabolomics; the biophysics of growth.
