UK bioscience sparkles with new Diamond fellowship
Date:7/20/2009

p>
  • Seven David Phillips Fellowships supporting the UK's most promising early career researchers. David Phillips Fellows are the bioscience leaders of the future. These researchers are the minds who will help UK bioscience to deliver answers to social and economic challenges in the coming decades. Examples include gaining a better understanding of energy metabolism which could pave the way for significant health benefits and studying vision in deep sea animals which could have benefits in optical technologies.

  • The first Industrial Impact Fellowship - a new scheme established to enable a vital exchange of knowledge and expertise between academic and industrial sectors - helping to accelerate the development of new drugs by embedding an expert from the pharmaceutical industry in an academic research lab.

  • Institute Career Path Fellowship awarded to an early career researcher who will be based at a BBSRC Institute and will be carrying out research relevant to food security.

  • Five Research Development Fellows - a scheme that allows world-class UK researchers to develop their science in new directions and integrate new scientific approaches into their work. Examples include exploring new methods of using different enzymes to breakdown waste materials for use as biofuels and exploring how young children develop language which could lead to interventions for children with language difficulties.

  • 2009 Professorial Fellowship - awarded to an internationally renowned researcher developing new and innovative directions of research. This year's recipient will deploy the power of systems biology to answer questions about plant root development which could help deliver increased crop yields and improved food security.

    Dr Celia Caulcott, Director, Innovation and Skills for BBSRC, said: "We are excited to be awarding these Fellowships which give scientists the freedom to submerge themselves in their science and of
