Santander grant to support collaboration in Brazil

Hertfordshire researchers are forging new links with research teams in Brazil – thanks to a further £10,000 grant from Santander Universities UK.

The funding will support two research projects within the School of Life and Medical Sciences which are being led by Dr Keith Davies and Dr Henrik Stotz. As well as extending our links with universities in Brazil, our researchers will explore opportunities for collaborative studies into disease in oil seed rape and finding environmentally-sustainable solutions to the use of chemical pesticides.

This new funding is in addition to the financial support provided by Santander in December 2011 when it added the University of Hertfordshire to its Santander Universities network. To read the previous news story click here.
