The Cell Biology degree at the University of Stirling offers a unique interdisciplinary training in areas which underpin modern biology.The study of biological systems at the cellular, and subcellular level is key to understanding how organisms develop, how they respond to their environment and how the diseased state differs from the healthy state. Recent advances in cell biology are enabling cell biologists to detect, prevent and treat disease in both animal and plant systems, explore the processes associated with ageing, improve the quality and quantity of important food crop, develop novel and sustainable fuels and assess the impacts of environmental changes on biological systems. Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES) sits within the Faculty of Natural Sciences and is a multi-disciplinary department that participates in research and teaching in a broad range of subjects in the biological and environmental sciences. BES is a friendly, vibrant, and dynamic place in which to learn and research with a great sense of belonging engendered in our students from their very first days at the University. Research-led teaching is the key to deep learning and understanding. The academic staff in Biological and Environmental Sciences at Stirling are typically world leaders in their respective fields, thus ensuring that research-led teaching is at the core of all of our courses.
