Biomaterials Discovery


The EPSRC Next Generation Biomaterials Discovery Programme Grant ran from 2015 to 2022. During this time, we have had the pleasure of working with top-quality scientists from around the world, with representatives from 5 continents. We are proud of the diverse range of people that we have been able to attract to this exciting field of research with 42% female scientists. One of the great benefits of an EPSRC programme grant has been its ability to fund post-doctoral positions linked across different disciplines. These early career researchers have been able to use the programme grant as a stepping stone in their careers, allowing some to move into positions within academia and others to get the right job for them in industry. Roughly half of our alumni have gone to work in Industry or other roles, while the other half moved roles within academia. Three of these took up independent academic fellowships. A more detailed breakdown of this career progression data is given in the pie-charts below.
