£17M announced to support industrial biotechnology

A total of 16 projects have today received a share of £17M to bring innovative challenge-led biotechnology concepts to market. The projects funded under round four of the IB Catalyst focus on a range of topics such as creating biofuels and developing new antibiotics to keep us healthy. One such project from the University of Manchester, John Innes Centre and GlaxoSmithKline will look to improve processes by developing new enzymes which could be used by bacteria to produce drugs molecules in a more cost-effective manner.
