Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre

New biomanufacturing technologies are transforming our ability to produce new medicines, sources of energy, industrial chemicals and food.  
However, the challenges are immense. Biological systems are often complex and unpredictable. To translate biological discoveries into commercial reality we need to devise and employ new tools and processes that enable knowledge-based design and engineering of biomanufacturing processes – from single molecules to cell populations


iGEM is an annual competition that combines engineering, synthetic biology, and entrepreneurship to tackle world problems in areas like medicine, environment, and manufacturing.


PHYCONET is a Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council Network in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (BBSRC NIBB), a UK-based network enabling biologists, engineers and industrial partners to consolidate their knowledge and expertise to unlock the IB potential of microalgae.

Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures

The Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures is an ambitious and innovative collaboration between the University of Sheffield and the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment. Our sustainability research creates knowledge and connects it to policy debates on how to build a fairer world and save natural resources for future generations.
