UK chemical biology networks
AGRI-net has been funded via a joint call from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) to support Collaborative Networks between academia and end users, where end users are defined as any organisation that has the potential to use and/or exploit the outputs of Research Councils-funded research in the area of Chemical Biology (e.g. industry).
The purpose of the networks is to foster collaborative endeavours between academic researchers and user organisations, working across the research council boundary remits, in order to tackle significant research challenges in chemical biology.
AGRI-net is one of 7 Chemical Biology networks that was funded through this call, and is the only one focusing solely on the agri-sciences.
