× Medicines Discovery Catapult

A key part of our disruptive, patient-centred model of drug discovery is our collaborations with SMEs. We apply our expertise and resources to help reduce risk, share learnings, and improve success rates across early stage medicines R&D.

From your first engagement with us, we’ll work with you to understand the commercial and scientific potential of your projects and ideas. Our team can then identify the services and support you need.

A wide range of collaboration opportunities can be considered across all our capabilities.

Signposting and connecting

We have developed a strong understanding of the UK-wide capabilities in medicines discovery, so we can help you find the right partner or supplier that can deliver what you need. And we won’t charge for doing so.

Joint grant applications for collaborative R&D funding

We can identify appropriate funding opportunities for your work, and we have specialist grant writing expertise to work with you in crafting top quality joint funding applications. We regularly update our list of open funding application opportunities.

Contracted fee-for-service projects

If we work together on a project that requires significant input from us, we’ll need to charge you for any costs incurred (due to state aid rules) – we’ll agree this upfront before starting the work.
