The Unit recognises the far-reaching socioeconomic benefits that commercialisation of our research will provide. To increase commercialisation opportunities, we aim to:

  • Identify promising new leads from our innovative research for commercial development
  • Encourage entrepreneurship

The Unit is well placed within the University of Cambridge to utilise the existing thriving business and enterprise ecosystem including Cambridge Enterprise, the Judge Business School and the Research Operations Office.

Our close links with Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) and Cambridge Alliance on Medicines Safety (CAMS) provide a wealth of benefits for commercial opportunities, including access to industry experts in residence, translational champions and avenues or funding for follow on/proof of concept studies.
