The aim of this programme is to deliver a consortium-based platform of national scale that will break through the complexity of pain and reveal potential new treatment approaches to address a wide spectrum of chronic and debilitating clinical conditions.
The focus of the animal health priority is to support fundamental and strategic research leading to the development of intervention strategies for combatting endemic and exotic infectious diseases that reduce the health and welfare of farmed or domesticated animals of importance to the UK economy.
The aim of this programme is to support and enable UK researchers to carry out unique research, in collaboration with colleagues around the world, to improve our understanding of antimicrobial resistance.
BBSRC’s Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) programme trains, funds, and supports research teams to determine whether there is a market for products or services that utilise their bioscience-based research and technologies.
BBSRC’s International Schemes include a range of shorter and longer term awards for working with overseas scientists and researchers. Depending on the type of award, the funding can be used for:
- overseas visits
- access to facilities not available in the UK
- other activities and costs.
This Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) priority aims to support research focused on combatting antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and research that underpins the development of strategies to mitigate the effects, for example, through novel alternatives to antimicrobials.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) interests are focused on supporting research projects that will deliver greenhouse gas emission savings through the biologic production of sustainable, advanced biofuels and other low carbon fuels.
This programme holds a major role in supporting the development of new biological processes, strains of organisms and feedstocks. These can be used to support:
- novel, bio-based and low carbon manufacturing processes
- the production of more sustainable products
- the development of remediation processes.
Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) provides research funding to improve health and wellbeing across the life course, to reduce the need for medical and social intervention.
BBSRC aims to encourage a whole food-systems approach for sustainable agriculture and food (SAF) research, to deliver productive, resilient and sustainable farming. Our remit covers arable, horticultural, forage and non-food crops, farmed animals, agricultural systems and related food chains.
