Cyanobacteria - which propel the ocean engine and help sustain marine life – can shift their colour like chameleons to match different coloured light across the world’s seas, according to research by an international collaboration including Professor David Scanlan from the University of Warwick.
The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Bronze Award in 2013. This was renewed in April 2015 for a further three years.
"Athena SWAN is a central component of our culture and working practice and we continue to champion the development of a science department that provides collegiality and transparency to ensure equal opportunities for all"
Head of School, Professor Lorenzo Frigerio
