Welcome to Medicines Discovery Catapult

We are a government-funded, not-for-profit organisation.

We are reshaping the UK’s medicines discovery for patient benefit. We are part of a network of Catapults established by Innovate UK; we are an independent, not-for-profit organisation that industrialises and drives the adoption of new tools and technologies for the sector.

Whether you are focused on creating new medicines or progressing a new innovative technology, our team will be able to offer assistance with your project.

We will help you to develop and deliver your project strategy, provide industrial medicines discovery expertise, and undertake cutting-edge laboratory work and Virtual R&D services as required. We will help advance your idea from the initial concept to the clinic by unblocking your project at places where you do not have the internal technology or expertise.
