Joint Seminar CDB & CB
School of Research
Work to build on Dundee’s world-class expertise in biomedical sciences is set to begin in earnest after the ‘Growing the Tay Cities Biomedical Cluster’ project was officially signed off by the Tay Cities Region Joint Committee today (February 19).
The project will help the post-COVID-19 recovery through the development of new medicines, innovative medical technologies and the provision of high-quality new jobs, according to the University of Dundee academics leading it.
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.
Interactions between world-class research and teaching can bring truly remarkable impacts. The ‘Dundee Virtual Microscope’ a collaboration between Dr Paul Felts from the School of Science & Engineering and the OME group led by Professor Jason Swedlow in the School is a prime example.
A University of Dundee researcher has been awarded £1.6 million in funding to further his research into immune responses, which may produce insights into a variety of diseases, including asthma, obesity, and parasitic infections.
