School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sci

Organization profile

Profile Information

Based in the Huxley and Cockcroft Buildings on the University of Brighton’s Moulsecoomb campus, the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences (PaBShas an established track record of pioneering and impactful research in the subject areas of; age and stress related disease, applied biosciences, biomaterials and drug delivery, cell biology, chemistry, chemical biology, ecology, conservation and zoonosis genomics, neurosciences, medicines optimisation, and regenerative medicine.

We have excellent research facilities including a range of modern laboratories in chemistry, microbiology, molecular ecology, clinical and biosciences, a tissue culture suite, an image analysis suite, genomics centre, with new investments into state-of-the-art mass spectroscopy, 3D sequencer and dexa scanner. We have a team of highly-motivated academic staff, many of whom are internationally recognised leaders in their fields. We have a strong multi- and inter-disciplinary ethos, with much of our research focused on finding solutions to health and environmental issues that will have benefits for local, national and global communities.

The school hosts two of the university’s Centres of Research and Enterprise Excellence (COREs): the Centre for Regenerative Medicine and Devices and the Centre for Stress and Age-related Disease (STRAND). It also supports six Research and Enterprise Groups (REGs): the Applied Biosciences REGSensory Neuroscience REG, Ecology, Conservation and Zoonosis REG, Biomaterials and Medical Devices and Drug Delivery REG, Chemistry REG, and the Medicines Optimisation REG.
