Bioscience for life

Bioscience affects us every day of our lives

Advances in areas such as the understanding of disease, microbiology and plant science mean that bioscience is constantly impacting on our day-to-day life.

BBSRC funds around £450M of research across the biosciences - from molecules to populations - this research is helping us tackle the big challenges of our time:

  • Food security
  • Sustainable bioenergy
  • Healthy ageing

As well as research, BBSRC funds training in the biosciences, fosters opportunities for knowledge transfer and innovation and promotes interaction with the public and other stakeholders on issues of scientific and social interest.
