In response to recent developments in the UK bioimaging research landscape, BBSRC is conducting a review of bioimaging. Imaging is increasingly important for driving bioscience research discoveries.

An independent review of the UK Research Councils, led by Sir Paul Nurse, is published today. The report, Ensuring a Successful Research Endeavour, reviews why and how the UK should undertake research.

BBSRC in partnership with five other organisations – NC3Rs, Innovate UK, EPSRC, MRC, and Dstl – has published a roadmap on developing and applying non-animal technologies (NATs) to improve the methods and tools available for the safety and efficacy testing of pharmaceuticals, veterinary products, chemicals, agrichemicals and consumer products. The roadmap sets out a vision for the UK as a market leader in NATs and the steps to delivering this.
