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
Centre for Stem Cell Biology (CSCB)
We are a centre of excellence for pioneering stem cell research, undertaking fundamental and applied research on the biology of pluripotent stem cells with the aim to develop cell therapies for regenerative medicine.
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.
Imagine: Imaging Life
We develop and apply cutting-edge imaging technologies to address important biological and biomedical problems, whilst bringing together specialists in the biological application of super-resolution microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and cryo electron microscopy.
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.
