Biotechnology

As genome projects for animals, plants and microorganisms continue to advance, new opportunities arise that offer huge potential benefits in healthcare, agriculture and the environment through the production of new drugs, novel crops and bioremediation. The University of Manchester is home to the UK Centre for Tissue Engineering and enjoys strong links with industry. We are well placed to exploit emerging research opportunities with industry through the purpose-built BioSciences Incubator, where companies that spin out from our basic research are located. Research in biotechnology is diverse, and the following areas represent just a few examples; Wound healing, Injury and repair, Cancer biology, Arthritis research, Appetite and body weight, Neurodegeneration and movement disorders, Animal cell biotechnology, Microbial pathogenicity and production of therapeutics, Fungal biotechnology and protein production, Biofuels, Genetic engineering of crops, Containment of transgenes in the environment, Bioremediation of terrestrial and aquatic environments, Bioinformatics.
