Research centres and institutes
Scientists and researchers across the School of Biosciences work in collaboration with a wide range of interdisciplinary research institutes and centres.
Interdisciplinary research centres and institutes
The Bateson Centre
The Bateson Centre is a partnership between basic and clinician scientists, and is the world’s first Centre for Lifecourse Biology; studying mechanisms of change throughout life, including growth, remodelling, degeneration and repair with obvious importance in maintaining health and treating disease.
Centre for Membrane Interactions and Dynamics (CMIAD)
We bring together cell biologists with expertise in membrane traffic and the cytoskeleton to work alongside physicists, chemists, computational biologists and clinicians, to understand how membrane dynamics contribute to the healthy organism and combating disease.
The Florey Institute
The Florey Institute is addressing one of the world’s biggest biomedical challenges – infectious disease. Set within the context of emerging antibiotic resistance, we study the complex interaction between pathogens and their host.
The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures
The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures is a collaboration between the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment and The University of Sheffield. We work with experts from academia, business and policy to create a sustainable future.
Leverhulme Centre for Climate Change Mitigation (LC3M)
We harness world-class expertise at the University of Sheffield, and of leading UK and international collaborators, to objectively investigate enhanced rock weathering with croplands as a strategy for safely removing the greenhouse gas CO2 from the atmosphere to cool the planet.
Our multidisciplinary and innovative approach to neuroscience research allows us to explore how sensory inputs are detected and processed by the nervous system in health and disease.
Flagship Institutes at the University of Sheffield
The Energy Institute at the University of Sheffield is finding low-carbon solutions to the world’s biggest energy challenges.
The Neuroscience Institute at the University of Sheffield brings together leading experts in medicine, science and engineering to better understand the nervous system and tackle the biggest challenges in neuroscience.
