Medicines Discovery Catapult


Medicines Discovery Catapult is a national facility connecting the UK community to accelerate innovative drug discovery. We’re a government funded, not-for-profit organisation, and this financial independence makes us unique. We’re able to take risks and pursue objectives that are understandably challenging for commercial for-profit companies. It’s the reason we’re able to focus so much of our effort on pioneering the next generation of medicine discovery techniques and technologies. By validating new ways of discovering medicines and driving key talent and expertise across the sector, we will support the UK life sciences industry, SMEs and innovators to deliver growth for the UK economy and maintain the UK’s heritage position as a global leader in medicines R&D. Ultimately, new industrialised technologies are vital for delivering new medicines to patients, faster.
