Biocontrol and Natural Products Group

Who we are

The groups work is divided into two broad categories: Biocontrol and Natural Products.  The former focuses on developing natural agents for the control of invertebrate pests which impact on food security and human and animal health.  The latter focuses on exploiting agents or their by products for use in disparate biotechnologies that contribute to protecting the environment and generation of new therapeutics for healthcare.
