What We Do:

 The mission of the Ryan Institute Biodiversity and Bioresources Research Cluster is to promote NUI Galway research in biodiversity and bioresources in a supportive and collegiate manner. The cluster serves as a platform to facilitate collaborative efforts between cluster members, and to identify external collaborative links for individuals and the cluster as a whole.  The cluster highlights members’ research achievements and seeks to identify funding sources, and to link those resources to member Principal Investigators (PIs), in order to support individuals and groups in producing outputs from their research.

The Biodiversity and Bioresources Research Cluster is focussed on two linked areas:
 
  1.  The biodiversity, ecology and evolution of species, habitats and ecosystems.
  2.  The materials, products and services (potential and existing) provided by natural resources.
