BBSRC’s new Chief Executive reflects on upcoming changes, Brexit, women in science and dissecting rodents in the garden shed as a curious teenager. (Reading on mobile or tablet? Try the Medium version.)

A new laboratory, the ‘AOX Lab’, has been opened at Hilldale Research Centre in Wickham to develop novel fungicide compounds, based on ground-breaking research at the University of Sussex, and as a result of the institution’s first ever industrial partnership. Work planned at the site will help to drive vital research into the control of respiratory activity in fungi which attack the world’s major cereal crops.

A joint investment between BBSRC and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) has been made to support collaborations between UK and Brazilian scientists in advanced biofuels research. The funding (£3.5M from BBSRC with equivalent funding of £1.5M from FAPESP) has been awarded to two partnerships between the UK and Brazil that underpin integrated biorefinery approaches for the manufacture of advanced biofuels.
