A £1.7m laboratory building which will investigate infectious diseases has opened at the University of Warwick – helping to tackle some of the most globally important human diseases and prepare for pandemics of the future. The new containment suite will enable scientists to conduct cutting-edge research into infectious diseases, including tuberculosis (TB), influenza and COVID-19.

University Open Days

The University hosts a number of Open Days. During these Open Days we present course information and run live demonstrations illustrating some of the School's research. You will be able to join a tour around Life Sciences, which includes a visit to our labs, and attend a talk covering study with us and detail on our degrees. There will be members of staff and student ambassadors on hand to answer questions.

Our Open Days will be back in the summer of 2023 - register your interest.

The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Silver Award in 2018.

As of 2021, we transformed into the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC). While maintaining our core Athena Swan activities, we have widened our scope to take care of numerous aspects that are decisive for an inclusive and productive learning and teaching environment at SLS.
