Nottingham receives £14.3m in funding for new research centre

Nottingham

The University of Nottingham has received funding to develop a Synthetic Biology Research Centre which will provide groundbreaking sustainable routes to important chemicals.

Thanks to funding from Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Professor Nigel Minton and his team, will use synthetic biology to engineer microorganisms that can be used to manufacture the molecules and fuels that modern society needs in a cleaner and greener way.

They aim to use bacteria to convert gasses that are all around us (such as carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4)) into more desirable and useful molecules, reducing our reliance on petrochemicals.
