The BioUpdate Foundation

Lecture Room


The BioUpdate Foundation has almost 25 years experience in organising courses aimed at putting knowledge into practice. Our courses aim to help you understand the science and understand how the science can be put to practical use.

Courses are limited to specific areas of pharmaceutical, biomedical and life science interest. In order that our clients can derive the most benefit form our course, we are now focussing on “in house” and “close to house” courses. Our target audiences are those who need to be introduced to new areas of interest and those who wish to have their knowledge updated.

Our courses have distinctive features which are designed to give maximum opportunity and may now be booked on-line.  See our Book Courses page for booking and registration options.

Latest Blog.  Can you build an "inside-our" protein?  This is as much a challenge as a blog.  The familiar structure of a protein with a hydrophilic surface and a more hydrophobic core is a consequence of the properties of water.  But the properties of water change with temperature and pressure. Can we change them sufficiently to allow us to build an inside-out protein?  Click here to read more.
