Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    This paper analyses the influence of social origin on graduates’ labour market outcomes one and five years after graduation. It can be expected that graduates from ‘soft’ fields such as the humanities may benefit from a privileged social background. In ‘hard’ fields, like engineering and life sciences, less strong effects of social origin can be expected. For the empirical analyses the authors use data from the HIS-graduate panel 1997 and 2001. The differences found between graduates from different social origin in relation to earnings and the achievement of a leading position can be completely explained by previous educational choices and experiences, in particular by field of study, grades and process of studying. Direct social origin effects can be discovered for the traditional professions only.
