Novel approaches to tackling obesity, cancer and MRSA

Obesity, cancer and the hospital "superbug" MRSA are the targets for novel drugs being developed under a new scheme funded by the Wellcome Trust. The Seeding Drug Discovery initiative aims to bridge the funding gap for health researchers involved in early-stage drug discovery projects that will be the springboard for further research and development by the biotech and pharmaceutical industry.

Speakers:

  • Seeding Drug Discovery Dr Ted Bianco (Technology Transfer Division, Wellcome Trust)
  • Natural gut hormone offers hope for new obesity drug Professor Steve Bloom (Imperial College London)
  • New antibacterials being developed to tackle MRSA Dr Lloyd Czaplewski (Prolysis)
  • Novel approach to cancer drug Professor Jeremy Tavar (University of Bristol)
