A project aimed at accelerating the delivery of new drugs to patients, led by the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art, has received a grant of £1.9 million.
The funding has been awarded to ARTICULAR, a project which will use advances in digital technology to help reduce the time it takes to get new drugs to market by harnessing the potential of large data sets and Machine Learning more>>
The University of Strathclyde is a strategic partner in a new £56 million UK innovation centre, which will revolutionise the way medicines are manufactured. The world-first, industry-led Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC) will offer pharma companies, from start-ups through to multinational organisations, a service to develop and adopt novel manufacturing techniques to adapt into their own manufacturing processes. The centre is to be located in Renfrewshire. The MMIC will also translate to industry the output of the EPSRC Centre for Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation.
