Commercialisation and impact in Life Sciences
We are committed to ensuring that our research has a real and significant impact on the quality of people’s lives – their health, the economy and the environment.
Octopus Ventures 2021
The School's global reputation for research excellence has enabled us to forge important strategic partnerships and attract inward investment from industrial collaborators as well as create new high-growth life sciences spin-out companies.
This has had significant local impacts, stimulating the emergence of a regional life sciences cluster which makes a major contribution to the Tay Cities regional economy.
Our activity is supported by the specialist team in Research and Innovation Services.
