All senior scientific staff at the NIBSC are expected to undertake scientific research projects in addition to their responsibilities to produce biological standards and carry out control testing of products. Their expertise in regulatory science and access to specialist materials and facilities at the Institute enable them to make important contributions in this field.
Our research work is supported through peer reviewed funding awards from Department of Health and Social Care and external funding agencies. We collaborate nationally and internationally with academia, manufacturers and other scientific organisations. We welcome new collaborations that address scientific questions of regulatory importance pertaining to Biological Medicines. Please contact individual scientists directly or at firstname.lastname@example.org on more cross-cutting and general research questions.
Scientific staff are organised into Divisions that reflect their scientific interest: Biotherapeutics, Bacteriology, Infectious Disease Diagnostics, Virology, and Advanced Therapies (which incorporates the UK Stem Cell Bank housed at the NIBSC).Scientific specialists with expertise in cross-cutting technologies are grouped into the Analytical and Biological Sciences Division.
