University of Southampton – Research Groups

Southampton’s research groups and institutes are driving cutting-edge research addressing many of the One Health challenges. Climate change, social and health inequalities, sustainable development, and biodiversity conservation are some of the topics being addressed through Geography and Environmental Sciences:

Ocean and Earth Sciences based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, a leading centre for oceanography and marine geoscience, cover the coast to the deep ocean and offer access to a wide range of research facilities.

Biological Sciences are addressing fundamental challenges of human health and environmental change; conducting research with industry partners from food to pharmaceuticals. Including agricultural ecology, adaption to changing environments, crop pests and pollinators, human nutrition and food and water security.

Engineering and Electronics and Computer Sciences offer expertise across a diverse range of interests from resource management, bioenergy, eco-hydraulics, sensors and biosensors, analysing complex systems, AI, machine learning and autonomous systems.

The University is also home to several interdisciplinary groups, bringing together specialists and external organisations to address large societal issues:

NEXUS Science is spearheading the advancement of understanding of how to develop water, energy and food resources sustainably to benefit societies and the environment.

NAMRIP the Global Network for Anti-Microbial Resistance and Infection Prevention covers pharmacology and therapeutics, sensing and diagnostics, preventing infection, clean water, sewage and waste, and relationship between animal and human health.  Southampton also leads the National Biofilms Innovation Centre
