The Funders Perspective episode 1: BBSRC

How can understanding and technologies from the basic biosciences contribute to the wider field of mental health research? What cross-disciplinary interface areas involving biosciences open up areas for innovative translational research? And what are some of the barriers and enablers to working across disciplines involving the basic biosciences?

In this #MentalHealthResearchMatters podcast Dr Sadhana Sharma (Head of Strategy – Bioscience for Integrated Understanding of Health) and Dr Iain Templeman (Senior Portfolio Manager) at the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) discuss these questions and outline how the BBSRC’s portfolio and strategy fits in with the wider landscape of mental health research.
