BioPronNet and Metals in Biology: The elements of Biotechnology and Bioenergy - bioscience networks to benefit UK economy

 

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) has funded 13 unique collaborative Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (BBSRC NIBB) to boost interaction between the academic research base and industry, promoting the translation of research into benefits for the UK.


Professor Mark Smales and Professor Martin Warren of the University’s School of Biosciences and the Centre for Molecular Processing will each be directors of one of the networks, which pool skills from academia and business to develop research projects with the potential to overcome major challenges in the industrial biotechnology and bioenergy arena. The networks will drive new ideas to harness the potential of biological resources for producing and processing materials, biopharmaceuticals, chemicals and energy.
