BBSRC has funded five UK universities to provide training programmes in strategically important and vulnerable skills for bioscientists in the first round of its Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) scheme.

 

  

Simon Cockell, manager of the Bioinformatics Support Unit led a successful application from Newcastle University for this scheme to support the BSU's bioinformatics training program.

 

 

This £27k award will allow for the development and expansion of existing courses into the Newcastle University Bioinformatics Analysis Skills School (NUBASS).

 

 

 

See http://bsu.ncl.ac.uk/support/courses for details of existing bioinformatics training opportunities.

Personal and community wellbeing – how can it work?

Karen Scott’s research into qualitative measures of wellbeing is focused on the intersections between culture, wellbeing and the environment. In a short video for The Network of Wellbeing she suggests that context is a hugely significant factor in personal and community wellbeing and argues that prescriptive recipes can support the status quo or disempower people if not used in a sensitive way. Karen is a research fellow at CRE.
