We provide a link between the academics of the College of Life Sciences and industrial partners by ensuring the rapid progression of carefully selected basic science projects towards clinically facing outcomes. We work with renowned big pharmaceutical  and biotech companies and contract research organisations to lead projects through clinical phases of drug development - from target validation, through lead identification and into lead optimisation, pre-clinical models and on towards “first in man” clinical trials.
