At Glasgow, we’ve created multidisciplinary teams to address national and global research challenges. Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine combines expertise in animal biology and ecology with extensive knowledge of comparative and veterinary medicine.

Our integrated approach

Unique in the UK, the range of our research spans multiple biological levels, integrating:

  • research into molecules and cells,
  • research into individuals; and
  • research into human populations and ecosystems.  

Given the threats posed by environmental change and rapidly increasing human population, there’s never been a more urgent need for a holistic approach.

With this belief in mind, we bring together rigorous quantitative analysis, appropriate theoretical frameworks and predictive modelling to help us understand the interdependence of animal and human populations, ecosystems and the environment.
