Increased collaboration

Shaking hands

​The best brains can be found across different sectors and increased collaboration between industry, academia, the NHS and regulators must be fostered in order to achieve a reduction in the time it takes to develop new medicines for patients. 

This could take place in pre-competitive or non-competitive research, for example in areas such as predictive toxicology, drug target identification and validation and the identification of novel biomarkers. Some good examples are:

  • The Stem Cells for Safer Medicines public-private partnership, which specialises in the identification of stem cell derived cell lines for predictive toxicology – www.sc4sm.org
  • The Innovative Medicines Initiative – www.imi.europa.eu
  • The MRC-ABPI immunology and inflammation initiative – www.mrc.ac.uk
  • The Therapeutic Capability Clusters as proposed in the Office of Life Sciences 2009 Life Sciences Blueprint
