Biomedical and therapeutic research committee (BTRC)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As health services continue to evolve rapidly in Scotland, it is essential that both health policy and clinical practice are underpinned by robust research. The Biomedical and Therapeutic Research Committee (BTRC) of CSO covers research relevant to Scotland’s health, which may be clinical or laboratory based – including public health, disability and continuing care research, using biomedical technology.1 In practice, this means that BTRC seeks to fund translational projects that links the innovation chain between fundamental research as a source of knowledge, and its application for clinical benefit or health gain.
