The Medicines Discovery Catapult is the centre of national expertise for the discovery of medicines. The Medicines Discovery Catapult has been established as a private sector, industry focused, independent organisation to develop new approaches for the discovery and early development of new medicines helping to transform ideas into commercial products and services. The Catapult will develop and validate new ways of discovering new medicines and supporting the key UK strength in pharmaceutical, biotechnology and contract research organisations.
MRC Technology is a technology transfer organisation that helps bridge the gap between basic medical research and commercial application. Our goal is to ensure that innovative life science research reaches its full potential. We were established in 2000 to identify, protect and commercialise IP arising from the UK’s Medical Research Council, but today we also translate early discoveries into partnered assets for universities, medical research charities, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology organisations around the world. Our drug discovery laboratories take novel academic targets and generate lead stage small molecules and therapeutic antibodies for indications with unmet medical need.
The NCRI is a partnership of UK cancer research funders. NCRI Partners have funded more than £5.5bn of cancer research since 2002, and working together ensures that these funds are used to best effect. We provide a forum for Partner organisations to build close connections with each other, and the wider research community, including consumers and industry. By linking with these stakeholders, a diverse set of expertise and perspectives can be harnessed to make progress against cancer. We run a number of core activities that facilitate coordination and help to form the ‘big picture’ of UK cancer research, including a database that tracks how Partners research funds are spent. We also explore and run collaborative initiatives to address research gaps or barriers and capitalise on scientific opportunities that are too large or complex to be taken forward by one organisation alone.
The Nutrition Society is a scientific society promoting nutrition and dietetics research via our five peer reviewed journals, academic textbooks, scientific conferences and training workshops. The Society was established in 1941 at the height of World War Two 'to advance the scientific study of nutrition and its application to the maintenance of human and animal health'. That remains our mission today. Highly regarded by the scientific community, the Nutrition Society has grown to be the largest learned society for nutrition in Europe. Our membership is world-wide and open to anyone with an interest in the science of human or animal nutrition.
