Microdissection, tumoural angiogenesis and asthma are among the areas of UK research to benefit from a £13.8 million ($20 million) investment in equipment from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Fifty-three UK universities will receive the funding under the Joint Research Equipment Initiative for 2000, which has awarded a total of £161 million since its launch in 1996. At the end of last year the DTI pledged £125 million for research under the Joint Infrastructure Fund and a further £44 million over three years to develop "radically new instruments" in the fields of bioengineering and nano-technology, among others (see Clinica No 938, p 6).
