× Medicines Discovery Catapult

It can take 10-15 years to develop a new medicine at an estimated cost of £1.2bn

At the Medicines Discovery Catapult we aim to help UK SME biotechs, academics and innovators have access to the laboratory facilities, knowledge, data, technologies and networks they need to be able to progress their programmes of medicines research and development. Our objective is to work collaboratively as part of a Syndicate to bring new proven therapies to patients faster and more cost-effectively.
