Fundamental bioscience news

Every year, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), invests over £450 million in world-class bioscience, and impact can arise from everything BBSRC invests in. This includes research addressing strategic challenges, the curiosity-driven frontier bioscience which helps us to understand the rules of life, and the development of transformative technologies that push the boundaries of scientific discovery.
