Research is at the core of Durham University. It shapes and inspires the disciplinary structure of our departments, several of which lead the UK - and even the world - in their fields. Research leads the content and development of our teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and creates new cross-disciplinary programmes through our centres and institutes. In partnership with policy-makers, industry, healthcare and education, Durham's cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural research shapes local, national and international agendas.

Forthcoming research seminars
Biomathematics mini-course: Mathematical models for DNA recombination processes
To be delivered by Professor Natasha Jonoska (University of South Florida at Tampa), 4, 5 and 6 June, 2-3pm, CM221.
Prof. Jonoska is a highly respected academic with a strong reputation for her work on applications of topology and graph theory to problems in biomathematics. In particular, she has been the recipient of the prestigious TULIP Award in 2007, an annual prize awarded by the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering, for outstanding achievements in the field of biomolecular computing and molecular programming. She has engaged in a variety of interdisciplinary collaborations, most prominently with Prof. Nadrian Seemann of New York University, a biochemist who pioneered the use of synthetic DNA molecules in DNA nanotechnology.
