exists to strengthen and integrate pure and applied research in plant sciences, biology, genetics and biotechnology in and around Cambridge. It promotes research opportunities between the academic arena, research institutes and local industry through dedicated lectures, workshops, newsletters and networking events.
brings together University experts, including plant scientists, biochemists, conservation scientists, chemists, engineers, chemical engineers and economists. They aim to develop forms of bioenergy that are sustainable, ethically and socially responsible, and do not compete with food crops. Participating researchers are actively engaged in promoting energy awareness within the University and on local, regional and national levels.
involves a large multidisciplinary group of scientists, with a strong contribution from Plant Sciences, who aim to use algae for a variety of applications in the biotechnology and bioenergy industry. Members of the consortium collaborate with industrial partners to test their ideas.
is a unique collaboration between the University of Cambridge and leading biodiversity conservation organisations in and around Cambridge. The CCI partners together combine and integrate research, education, policy and practice, to create innovative solutions for society and to foster conservation learning and leadership.
promotes relevant research across the University of Cambridge (Plant Sciences, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Geography and Scott Polar Research Institute) and at the British Antarctic Survey. Research in Plant Sciences provides a focus for fundamental plant molecular processes and their integration at whole plant, community and ecosystem levels.
has its roots in research conducted in the Department of Social Anthropology on medicinal uses of indigenous plants by native Amazonian populations. It includes researchers from plant sciences, archaeobotany, pharmacology, medicine and biochemistry, and is open to external partners interested in the wider subject.
