BBSRC announces £10M of funding for advanced scientific equipment
Date:12/18/2013

BBSRC is investing 10M in advanced scientific research instruments to help keep the UK at the forefront of biological sciences research.

The 20 grants from the BBSRC Advanced Life Sciences Research Technology Initiative (ALERT 13) represent the first major equipment purchasing grant scheme from BBSRC since 2007.

The equipment funded includes a super-resolution microscope for plant scientists, the UK's first two commercial Fluorescence Light Sheet Microscopes and the establishment of a consortium for three-dimensional electron microscopy at Oxford Brookes University.

A full list of the funded equipment and costs is available in 'Notes to Editors'.

The ALERT 13 scheme preferentially funds applications where the equipment will get maximum use, and sharing between research groups is encouraged.

Collaboration and extending access to the instruments to industry and public sector users is also encouraged to enhance the potential impact of research.

Professor Jackie Hunter, BBSRC Chief Executive, said: "This funding represents a significant investment in advanced equipment for UK scientists and underlines BBSRC's commitment to making sure its research community has the best resources to continue to undertake world-leading research."
