    EFB Response to Scottish GM Ban.

    The European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB) is deeply concerned about the news of a Scottish Government proposal to ban cultivation of genetically modified crops based upon prejudice rather than on scientific evidence. The Executive Board authorised the issue of a letter to the Scottish national party urging them not to handicap Scottish citizens with such a ban. To see the full text of the letter please click here: EFB response to SNP ban on GM crops.pdf

    Imaging: Recent Advances and Biomedical Applications − 30 September 2015
    organised by SCI − UK.

    Advances in imaging are revolutionising the way we treat disease and providing exciting, often non-invasive methods for probing underpinning biology. Whether it be accurately locating the position of a tumour, providing a method that allows early diagnosis of a disease or shedding unique insight into the spatial distribution and temporal behaviour of a biomolecule inside a cell, the development and application of new imaging technologies offers an exciting opportunity for physical scientists to collaborate with life scientists and clinicians.

    For more information, please follow the link: Imaging: Recent Advances and Biomedical Applications
