The next phase of development at Oxford Brookes is now complete, with the opening this week of the Sinclair Annex.
The 21st century has been dubbed “the century of the biosciences”. Advances in biomedical sciences mean that people will live longer so one of the grand challenges the world faces is to feed our ever growing population. Plant scientists are working to ensure this as over the next decades food production will have to double if we are to avoid extensive global famines exacerbated by the effects of climate change on the availability of agricultural land and a shift towards increasing meat consumption.
Oxford Brookes is taking part in this years’ Oxford Festival of Nature (1-14 June).
In recent weeks, we have focused on four new research projects at Oxford Brookes which have received grants from the Newton Fund.
Four new videos featuring talks by Chris Hawes, Professor of Plant Cell Biology at Oxford Brookes University are now available to watch online.
The Ol Kinyei conservancy in the Mara ecosystem in Africa, where Oxford Brookes’ Spatial Ecology and Landuse Unit (SELU) has been working to monitor and model the response of the landscape to the expansion of the conservancy, has been shortlisted to be included on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Green List of Protected Areas. At present there are only two IUCN Green List Protected Areas in Africa.
Three students studying BSc Equine Science presented their scientific research in front of a host of industry representatives, students and staff from other universities and colleges at the Alltech-Hartpury Student Conference.
An Oxford Brookes academic has been recognised with the highest award offered by the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) for “exceptional contributions to plant sciences”.
Athena SWAN Silver has been awarded to the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences in recognition of their commitment to advancing women's careers in science and medicine in higher education.
