× Medicines Discovery Catapult

Medicines Discovery Catapult (MDC) exists to help reshape medicines discovery. It’s ambitious, and it’s achievable.

We do this by championing innovative life science technology and new approaches, supporting UK’s innovators to succeed. We thrive on innovation.

We collaborate with UK medicines discovery and diagnostics organisations, giving them access to industry-leading expertise, cutting-edge technology, and high-quality data. We accelerate their progress, precision drugs get to clinical trials more rapidly, and patients get life-improving medicines earlier than they otherwise would have.

If you’re involved with medicines discovery in the UK, MDC can almost certainly assist you. Our impact is measured by your success.
