The Department operates on a devolved research basis, based upon a Research Group structure. Each Research Group has its own culture and strategy matched to the cutting edge of contemporary science in that area. Collaborative projects between groups are strongly encouraged.
The Research Group structure evolves over time in response to changing priorities and opportunities. The links below provide top-level descriptions of the Research Groups, as well as links to the Research Groups' own web-pages which provide detailed descriptions of the research, the personnel and contact details.
