Wastewater treatment plants are unwittingly helping to spread antibiotic resistance, say scientists. Their research suggests that processing human, farm and industrial waste all together in one place might be making it easier for bacteria to become resistant to a wide range of even the most clinically-effective antibiotics.
BBSRC and the MRC, in association with the Society of Biology, are holding a consultation with the UK bioscience and medical science research communities regarding emerging or existing strategic research skills and capabilities that are vulnerable or potentially vulnerable.
Continuing our series of articles on Great British bioscience pioneers, we profile the work of Professor Helen Sang, Personal Chair in Vertebrate Molecular Development at The Roslin Institute, which receives strategic funding from BBSRC. Prof Sang’s research has advanced our understanding of genetic modification techniques…
