Their names were LoLas...

In an attempt to move away from the "three years, one postdoc, one protein" mindset the BBSRC is introducing a new longer and larger (LoLa) grant scheme to encourage more blue-sky research. The uncapped grants which start at £2 million have a maximum lifespan of 5 years; at present only two such grants have been awarded.

The grants align nicely with the £115 million push in systems biology that the council plans to make over the next 3 years.
