As part of the DTP, there are three research themes which encompass the World-class Underpinning Bioscience and Agriculture & Food Security BBSRC research areas. These are as follows:
- Agriculture and the Environment
- Animal Behaviour and In Vivo Studies
- Biomolecular and Biophysical Studies
For each theme there will be an academic Research Theme Champion who will organise theme specific activities including an annual research theme event. This is to promote networking opportunities between those undertaking research in similar areas and to expose you to current methods and challenges within these areas.
