Biodiscovery Institute Brochure 2023
The new brochure from the University of Nottingham’s Biodiscovery Institute (BDI) highlights a number of recent successes and significant expansions of its research capabilities. The BDI accommodates 85 research groups and approximately 850 researchers, bring together researchers from the Schools of Chemistry, Life Sciences, Medicine, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine and Science and the faculty of Engineering into an environment where interdisciplinary research can flourish. These are engaged in research in biotechnology for a more sustainable future and improving human health through new drug discovery, advanced materials for healthcare and better understanding of disease. The brochure provides a directory of the advanced facilities that the BDI can offer as well as the specialised research areas and techniques available from the principal investigators which span six multidisciplinary research themes.
Bringing together researchers from a diverse range of disciplines has made developing a supportive environment and positive research culture a key aim of the BDI. Developments in this area have included the initiation of Project Period, for the provision of free sanitary products throughout the BDI which has now been taken up University-wide and the empowerment of the early career researchers to take a leading role within the BDI including in outreach and other activities which has been recognised by the University of Nottingham Tri Campus Awards 2023 Team Award for Commitment to Enhancing the Research Culture and Environment.
