By working closely with our collaborators in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotech, personal care and agritech sectors we are transforming our understanding of the mechanisms of disease, developing new platform technologies to support drug discovery science and product innovation pipelines, pioneering new and cost-effective molecular therapies,  facilitating the repurposing of drugs and developing quality of life treatments.
