Life sciences

Life sciences include science disciplines that study living organisms and life processes. The core disciplines are biology and medicine, and they are supported by chemistry, physics and mathematical sciences. We invest in a wide range of ground-breaking research and innovation within the life sciences. We have schemes for research organisations, the public sector and industry.
