Gatsby currently provides ~ 50% of the Laboratory’s income, with the balance coming from competitive grants and contracts from a range of public and private bodies, including the EU, BBSRC and commercial and charitable organisations.
TSL Project Leaders can and do submit proposals for BBSRC and EU grants, which are only awarded after stringent external peer review. TSL group leaders win BBSRC grants entirely as a consequence of their scientific creativity and credibility. Currently five of our project leaders are in receipt of prestigious European Research Council (ERC) research grants.
We are committed to ensuring that staff who pass through the laboratory receive excellent training and we are proud a large number of our group leaders and post-doctoral scientists have moved on to prestigious positions at leading institutes and universities worldwide. We currently have seven group leaders and anticipate outside funding will continue to support ~50% of our scientific activity.
