What we're looking for

Aim

Based on the implementation principles of the ASPIRE program in Japan and the ISPF in the UK, this partnership program aims to support internationally competitive collaborative research projects between Japan and the UK focusing on the fundamentals of engineering biology and cross-cutting technologies, creating leading international researcher networks, and nurturing early career researchers to drive tomorrow’s engineering biology.

Scope

Engineering biology is the process of taking synthetic biology concepts and translating them into real-world solutions, for example:

  • the design and fabrication of biological components and systems
  • using engineering technologies and principles
  • from modifications to natural systems through to artificial biology

Consequently, engineering biology encompasses the entire innovation ecosystem, from breakthrough synthetic biology research to translation and application.

Engineering biology has the potential to offer solutions to a range of global societal challenges. This opportunity will create a pipeline for the development of high-risk, high-reward ideas and will exploit engineering biology approaches to generate impact across a range of sectors.

This funding opportunity aims to support research under the following research topics.

Discovery-inspired projects

Under this topic, we are looking for novel and high-risk ideas primarily focused on the design and re-design of biological cells, organisms and systems (synthetic biology). Research themes include bioengineered cells & systems (including synthetic plants), bio-inspired design and novel materials. Further details of these three themes can be found below. These descriptions are not exhaustive, and all ideas that fit under these themes are encouraged. We also recognise that these themes do not have hard boundaries, therefore novel ideas that cut across the three themes are also encouraged.

The bioengineered cells and systems theme

The bioengineered cells and systems theme aims to develop novel approaches and technologies that allow us to construct ‘de novo’ or modify existing cell and biological systems efficiently and effectively. We anticipate that engineering biology will be applied to:

  • innovation in precision genome engineering technologies
  • meet challenges at different biological scales (for example synthetic organelles, functionally-modified cells, hybrid networks such as brain-computer interfaces)
  • further the development and control of minimal/protocells, synthetic microbial communities and artificial life
The bio-inspired design theme

The bio-inspired design theme aims to build on the fundamental potential of biology. In this theme we anticipate that engineering biology will be exploited to utilise and enhance the properties of nature for biotechnological solutions, such as the sensitivity of receptors in a dog’s nose and broader sentinel organisms, navigation due to magnetoreception in a bird’s brain, or the data storage and computing capability of nucleic acids and cells.

The novel materials theme

The novel materials theme aims to develop new materials, products and production processes. It is anticipated that engineering biology can be used to create more sustainable production processes or alternative production solutions, and develop new:

  • materials
  • non-natural materials
  • integrated materials
  • smart/functional materials

Cross-cutting research and technologies

Under this topic, projects would be in transformative areas underpinning research and technology development to unlock the full impact and benefit the engineering biology field as a whole. This would include but not be limited to areas of, for example, rational design, sensors, scalability, metrology and standardisation. The development of computational approaches, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning that can revolutionise the design of engineering biology experiments would also be in scope even if no ‘wetlab’ engineering biology is conducted.

For more information on the background of this funding opportunity, go to the ‘Additional information’ section.

Duration

The duration of these awards can be up to three years for the UK component. The Japanese component will have a three-year basic project duration. This can be extended to up to five years subject to travelling and other exchanges.

Projects must start by 15 December 2024.

Funding available

BBSRC has earmarked £5 million for this activity. Funding will be available for up to five research projects with a three-year duration.

Proposals should adhere to the following country-specific requirement:

  • UK budget requests should be within the following range: £750,000 to £1 million (80% of the FEC)
  • Japanese budget request should be within the following range: ¥175.5 million to ¥234 million (including 30% overhead expenses)

What we will fund

The following are specific examples of inclusions (illustrative not exhaustive):

  • orthogonal biosystems: we encourage proposals in engineering cells and organisms to include systems or parts not found in nature to impart new capacities or chemistry
  • regulatory circuits: proposals for designing and inserting well-characterised circuits or networks, to generate new functions or responses in cells and organisms, are encouraged
  • protocells: we also encourage proposals in bottom-up chemical design approaches to produce synthetic or semi-synthetic cells and compartments
  • metabolic engineering: proposals involving using complex modifications informed by predictive models of biosynthetic pathways to allow or enhance production of useful products are also encouraged
  • minimal genomes: we encourage proposals involving the understanding of the minimal number of parts (genes) needed for life, to serve as a chassis for engineering minimal cell factories for new functions
  • bio nanoscience: proposals for projects that utilise and exploit synthetic molecular nano machines based on cellular systems are also encouraged

What we will not fund

The following are specific examples of exclusions:

  • applications that focus on the engineering of a system in which biology is embedded, rather than engineering the biological system itself, for example:
    • engineering the scaffold in tissue engineering, while not engineering the biological component
  • applications that are learning from biology, rather than engineering the biological system, for example:
    • design of a purely physical or chemical mechanical construct, taking inspiration from biological systems, rather than engineering an artificial or modified biological system applications focused on the development of an output of engineering biology, with no tangible engineering biology occurring in the project, for example:
    • an experiment using a metabolite of a well-established engineered chassis as an input to a chemical process, with no demonstrable element of engineering biology conducted by the applicants
  • applications where engineering biology is only a small component of the overall work plan

In counter point projects would be considered in scope if they are taking pre-existing engineering biology in a new context, for example, novel chemical production for the first time using this chassis.

Further examples of inclusions and exclusions by theme:

Bio-inspired design will:

  • exclude applications that are learning from biology, for example, design of a purely physical or chemical mechanical construct, taking inspiration from biological systems
  • include applications focused on engineering an artificial or modified biological system, designed and built upon knowledge learned from observations in biology, for example an organism designed to have more sensitive receptors, taking inspiration from a dog’s nose

Bioengineered cells and systems will:

  • exclude a microbiome engineering project, where the focus is on simply combining organisms from nature in non-natural combinations to explore form and function
  • include a microbiome engineering project, where the focus is on using synthetic biology to modify some property of the organism/organisms that are involved in a microbiome project
  • exclude a tissue engineering project focused on modifying the form or function of a non-biological scaffold to accommodate or improve biological form or function
  • include a tissue engineering project focused on modifying the form or function of the biological components (cells, growth factors and so on) to better interact within a scaffold
