EastBio is the East of Scotland BioScience Doctoral Training Partnership of which the University of Aberdeen is a partner. Funded by the BBSRC and supported by the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance, EastBio tackles major problems facing our planet with world class research.
We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for the East of Scotland BioScience (EASTBIO) Doctoral Training Partnership, of which the University of Aberdeen is proud to be a partner.
EASTBIO will fund and train PhD students across the spectrum of BBSRC research, tackling major challenges facing the world we live in – food security, the need for renewable resources and improving health.
These issues are at the heart of the research we conduct within the School of Biological Sciences and we are therefore lucky enough to contribute projects to EastBio to help facilitate the next generation of UK bioscientists. Our project submissions range from topics such as honey bee health to sustainable crop production, among other key issues facing the planet.
We have seen much success recently with the employment of new academic staff bringing new knowledge and perscpectives to the School, whom we are pleased to see have submitted projects to the EastBio scheme.
