About Edinburgh Drug Discovery

Edinburgh Drug Discovery represents a consortium of three University of Edinburgh PIs (Scott Webster, Neil Carragher and Asier Unciti-Broceta) with complimentary skills and experience in drug discovery and development obtained from both the academic and pharmaceutical industry sectors.

They would like to meet any colleagues interested in working collaboratively to move their academic research towards drug discovery.

Collectively the group has developed novel chemical equity and patents to support commercialisation opportunities, progressed drug discovery projects to Phase II clinical trials, contributed to spin-out companies, published >50 papers in past 5 years and developed numerous academic-industry alliances and translational research grant funding worth over £15 million.

The group wishes to expand opportunities for translational research collaborations with colleagues across the Edinburgh.  At this meeting the group will describe their respective capabilities, exemplar projects and operating models of how they work with academic and industry partners followed by an open discussion on potential opportunities.
