- Bristol to lead revolutionary research into 'self-healing' materials 11 January 2018 A consortium of seven institutions led by the University of Bristol, has received a grant of £2.7m to undertake ground-breaking research into manufacturing new materials which have the ability to self-heal or regenerate.
- Intracellular damage in a muscular dystrophy 11 January 2018 A new publication from the laboratory of Bristol Biochemistry's Andrea Brancaccio was published in Human Mutation and chosen as the cover image.
- Bacteria breakthrough marks new era in cellular design and biofuel production 13 December 2017 Scientists at the universities of Kent and Bristol have built a miniature scaffold inside bacteria that can be used to bolster cellular productivity, with implications for the next generation of biofuel production.
- Antibiotic Discovery in the Abyss 14 November 2017 Combining the innovations of synthetic biology with robotic environmental sampling, a team of University of Bristol researchers are travelling to some of the most ‘extreme’ environments on Earth, including Atlantic depths of 4.5km, to find new leads which could help in the global fight against antimicrobial resistance.

- The discovery of 'retriever' reveals new insight into human disease 15 September 2017 Bristol Biochemists have made the exciting discovery of a previously unrecognised multi-protein complex that plays a central role in controlling the delivery of proteins to the cell surface. The study of this complex, which they have called “retriever”, will pave the way for further understanding how delivery of proteins to the cell surface is perturbed in a variety of human diseases.
