People, skills and training
BBSRC and the Society of Biology are teaming up to engage with BBSRC postdoctoral researchers and build a community of bioscience research staff. This will begin with a networking and consultation event to be held on 6 October at Charles Darwin House in London, which aims to engage postdoctoral researchers in the biosciences with BBSRC and Society of Biology policy-making.
Continuing our series of articles on Great British Bioscience pioneers, we profile Professor Sir David Baulcombe from the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Cambridge and his pioneering work on RNA silencing and disease resistance in crops.
Continuing our series on Great British bioscience pioneers, we profile Dr Danny Thorogood, a plant breeder and geneticist at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University. His work on the genetics of plants has many applications, including in helping to improve the diversity and resilience of some of the world’s most important crops.
