Message from BBSRC Executive Chair. As we approach the festive season, I invite you to join me in reflecting on some of the fantastic science stories from 2018 – behind each of the baubles on our Christmas reindeer is an example of the excellent research BBSRC has funded.


As 2018 draws to a close, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), reflects on the numerous discoveries made this year. One of the key milestones was met on 1 April 2018 when UK Research and Innovation launched, bringing together the seven research councils, Innovate UK and Research England.


Due to essential maintenance, the Joint Electronic Submissions (Je-S) system will be unavailable on Friday 23 November from 21:00 - Monday 26 November 08:00 (GMT). We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to keep disruption of service to a minimum.
