The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 and enjoys a solid reputation for its school of engineering, veterinary medicine and medicine. Today over 21,000 undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral, on-line students and extension students make up the student body. The University of Liverpool has eight Nobel Laureates who have been associated with its university. It houses Centres of Excellence for research and recently expanded its global scope by opening an independent university in Suzhou, China in partnership with Xi'an Jiotong University. Researcher and press inquiries are welcome.

Shape-shifting animals reveal secrets of why energy use changes during growth
Scientists at the University of Liverpool and Queen Mary University, London, have shown that changes in body shape in 'skin-breathing' aquatic animals could explain why animals use energy more slowly as they grow.
Wild voles' fight against infection could help explain varied immunity
The different ways that animals and humans respond to infectious disease could be explained by analysis of the biology and environment of the genetically diverse, wild vole, say researchers at the University of Liverpool.
