Every year, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) invests over £450 million in world-class bioscience.
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.
The variety of impacts that we see is testament to the determination of our community to realise the benefits of their research. As part of UKRI, BBSRC plays an important role in enabling researchers to partner with businesses and other stakeholders, supporting the translation of research into tangible impacts for the economy and society.
