Research priorities

We have a list of research projects that are our priority and that we would support applications for. If you have a specific project title in mind on one of the species listed please contact research@knowsley.com and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Projects with support from the BIAZA Research Committee are much more likely to be accepted – more information can be found here.
