Organisation profile

The Faculty of Science has the largest number of research students in the University and it maintains its worldwide reputation by making research a priority. Multi-million pound funding from Research Councils, the EU, NHS, charities and industry ensures that our research is relevant and of national and international importance. Our research students and workers have access to leading edge, specialist facilities.

Research activity spans pure and applied sciences with a major input into the research 'pooling' initiatives across Scotland, including WestCHEM (for Chemistry), the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance, the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance, the Scottish Institute for Policing Research (which involves our Centre for Forensic Science) and the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA).

Research in the Faculty is conducted across all its academic departments and also in specialized research units.
