The BioUpdate Foundation
The BioUpdate Foundation organises courses aimed at putting knowledge into practice. Understanding the science and understanding how to use the science.
Courses are limited to specific areas of pharmaceutical, biomedical and life science interest. We strive to make them suitable for those who need to be introduced to new areas of interest and for those who wish to have their knowledge updated.
Our short term, typically 2 day, residential courses have distinctive features which are designed to give maximum opportunity.

Our Latest Blog: Redefining the Goldilocks Zone Over the past few years, hundreds of exo-planets have been found orbiting other stars in our galaxy. This has triggered renewed interest in the search for extraterrestrial life. Astronomers have defined a Goldilocks Zone, around stars, where life could exist. But have they cast the net too wide? A remark once made by Felix Franks suggests they have. Click here to read how the search could be narrowed.
We are pleased to announce that courses may now be booked on-line. See our Course Information page for booking and registration options.
