Though synonymous with biology, Life Sciences represents the diverse spectrum of disciplines within and beyond biological and biomedical fields. From the molecular and cellular worlds, to the organismal individuals, from the macro-level ecological views to the underlying evolutionary concepts, different aspects of Life Sciences contribute to our understanding of how we humans work as well as how we interact and impact our environment.
