Charles River Laboratories Announces Partnership with the Milner Therapeutics Institute and Consortium

09 Aug 16

Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with the Milner Therapeutics Institute and Consortium.

The Milner Therapeutics Institute aims to accelerate academic research by forging collaborative interactions between scientists and the pharmaceutical industry to deliver better therapies for patients. The outreach arm of the Institute, the Milner Therapeutics Consortium, connects academic scientists and institutions in Cambridge, U.K., with the pharmaceutical industry to develop the therapeutic potential of their research. The Consortium consists of four major pharmaceutical companies, Astex, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, and Shionogi, along with three academic centers, University of Cambridge, Babraham Institute, and Sanger Institute.

“Our partnership with the Milner Therapeutics Institute and Consortium further enables the collaboration between academics and pharmaceutical companies as they partner to investigate the therapeutic potential of their research,” said Emily Hickey, DVM, Ph.D., Corporate Senior Vice President, Global Discovery Services at Charles River. “Charles River has had great success partnering with academic consortia in the United States, and we look forward to the same success in our first major research collaboration in the United Kingdom.”

Through this partnership, the academic institutions in the Consortium will have access to Charles River’s early discovery and drug development resources and services to accelerate their early-stage drug development processes. Charles River is the first full-service, early-stage contract research organization (CRO) to partner with the Milner Therapeutics Institute and Consortium.
