× Medicines Discovery Catapult

People make the difference

Do you work in diagnostics, biomarkers or medicines discovery? Have you ever thought ‘someone really needs to…’ or ‘if it were my decision I would’?

Like many in the R&D community we believe we can, and must, do more to improve the lives of patients and drive our sector forward. To do this we must all embrace change.

We are a catalyst for disruptive and systemic change in the sector, as well as supporting the evolution of the industry due to global, regional and national changes in how this discovery is done. Our leadership team and Board have the experience, as well as the skills and determination, to bring about this transformative change. Do you?

Based at Alderley Park in Cheshire, we collaborate with academia and industry to develop new approaches for discovering the medicines of the future. By pooling knowledge and sharing expertise, the Catapult and its partners work together to identify approaches that are more predictive, efficient and of higher scientific and economic value than are currently available, striving to become world-leaders in the industry.

Our values

  • Empowering people to be creative
  • Providing permission to fail if people are doing the right thing
  • Trusting, respecting, and helping one another to do the right thing
  • Open and honest communication
  • Dedication to quality and to our mission

Diversity and equal opportunities for all

To move medicines discovery forward so that it continues to deliver for patients as well as for the UK’s medicines R&D community, we are eager to make sure we encourage applications from all groups in society. Our aim is to employ the richest mix of the most talented people, irrespective of gender, age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or religion.

Prejudice and bias has no place in our organisation as we look to create an inclusive workplace that celebrates differences and offers varied, rewarding and challenging careers to anyone with the talent to succeed. The Medicines Discovery Catapult is committed to equal opportunities and a diverse workforce.
