Department of Life Sciences


Welcome to the Department of Life Sciences at the University of Lincoln. This interdisciplinary department provides an exciting and stimulating environment where excellence in teaching and research are highly valued, and we provide opportunities for students and staff to pursue their scientific ambitions.

The Department of Life Sciences has a growing reputation for both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research, which covers a wide spectrum of the Life Sciences.

Since August 2014 we have been enjoying working in our new laboratories at The Joseph Banks Laboratories and Minster House, the first buildings of the Lincoln Science and Innovation Park. These are in addition to our fantastic purpose-built Janet Lane-Claypon Building, and are a direct example of our growth over recent years.
