Professor Claire Grierson


I lecture undergraduates in Year 2: "Green Planet" and "Cell and Developmental Biology" and Year 3: "Molecular Approaches to Plant Development" and "Agricultural Biotechnology".

I also teach 30 undergraduates either as personal tutees (6 at each level), practical project students or library project students (6 of each), and run the "Saving the Earth" Field Course for up to 15 Year 2 students annually.

I am the Bristol Director of the EPSRC and BBSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Synthetic Biology (SynBio CDT) where, together with the Warwick Director and overall Director at Oxford, I design and manage the training of 15 postgraduate students per year. I teach Biological Complexity to postgraduates at the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences. Sometimes I also teach "A Review of Ethics in Biology", "An Introduction to Systems and Synthetic Biology" and "Successful Collaboration" to postgraduates.
