Monday 23rd February 2015, 10-11am, School of Clinical Medicine
(followed by informal networking and question and answer sessions 11-11.30am & bookable 1:1 sessions 11.30-3pm)
Dr Duncan Holmes (Head of DPAc, Europe) and Dr Jeremy Griggs (DPAc Leader, Biology, Europe) will be coming back to visit the University of Cambridge to present the GSK Discovery Partnership for Academia scheme.
This scheme is an innovative approach to establish and fund academia/industry collaboration in early drug discovery.
A DPAc partnership offers you:
- A single partner to develop an idea into medicine
- A key role in the project, working alongside GSK who will support you
- Collaboration with GSK researchers with the skills to meet your needs
- Access to state-of-the-art drug discovery platforms
- The benefits of the generation of new research tools
- A financial share in the success of any future medicines
Format of the visit
- 10-11am Presentation on DPAc’s aims, explanation of how academic researchers can submit proposals for entering into a partnership, and answer any questions. This is similar to last year’s presentation
- 11-11.30am informal question and answer/networking session
- Bookable 30 minute 1:1 sessions between 11.30-3pm to discuss a specific project idea. Researchers found these very useful last time round, as the team will provide advice and feedback on any idea even if it may not be suitable for the DPAc scheme.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To register for the presentation and/or book a 1:1 session please email Vicky Smallbone; firstname.lastname@example.org, with your Title, Full Name, Role, Department and (if booking a 1:1 session) a preferred time slot by 11th Feb.
If you are unable to make this date but are interested in a 1:1 session please also let us know and we can coordinate a future visit.
