Matthew Parker and Giulia Saredi have been awarded SULSA ECR development funding in the first round of the scheme. The scheme is aimed at helping postdocs with two or more years post-PhD experience develop their own projects and begin the process of becoming independent researchers. The money is used to upskill, start new collaborations, or generate pilot data.

A University of Dundee researcher has been awarded £1.6 million in funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to develop machine learning tools for the life sciences. Machine learning has rapidly transformed many aspects of our daily lives in the last decade. It is also increasingly playing a vital role in analysing biomedical data. However, using these techniques to answer fundamental, mechanistic questions about biological processes remains challenging.
