Biology at Lancaster University


The Health Innovation Materials group is inherently interdisciplinary and highly collaborative. Each person brings their own unique knowledge and experience in this area. We collaborate with a pool of experts in the Faculty of Health and Medicine, particularly in the Department of Biomedical and Life Sciences and the Lancaster Medical School.
