The University of Manchester has been awarded £10 million from UKRI (EPSRC/BBSRC) for a UK-wide biomanufacturing research hub that could pave the way for easier and quicker ways to make new medicines and sustainable energy solutions.
The Future BRH  led by Professor Nigel, based at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB), will work in partnership with spokes at leading institutions and with industry to develop new Biotechnologies to speed up bio-based manufacturing in key sectors – pharmaceuticals, chemicals, engineering materials and biofuels.
