About us

We are one of seven research councils that work together as Research Councils UK (RCUK). We are funded by the government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

We invested £473 million in world-class bioscience, people and research infrastructure in 2015-16. We support around 1600 scientists and 2000 research students in universities and institutes across the UK.
