A total of 16 projects have today received a share of £17M to bring innovative challenge-led biotechnology concepts to market. The projects will use cutting edge science to deliver benefits for society: from creating new drugs from bacteria, to making plastic from plants.


Nine new research projects have today been awarded a share of £5.3M to offer insights into the role of food and nutrition on our health. The new projects were funded by BBSRC and MRC as part of a joint Responsive Mode highlight in Mechanistic Research in Nutrition, issued last year.


The winners of BBSRC’s two innovation and impact competitions were announced at a ceremony last night. BBSRC Innovator of the Year 2016 is Professor Tom Brown, from the University of Oxford for his for high impact serial entrepreneurship in DNA chemistry and outstanding commitment to innovation.
