Commercialisation and IP - translating scientific research

Scott Webster


University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK.


Commercialisation and the development of new technologies may be thought of as the natural conclusion of academic research. Typically this has been the preserve of industry, however, more recently translation has become a key aspect of any scientific research programme. The processes involved in the translation of basic and clinical research will be discussed in the context of an in-house drug discovery programme, highlighting the differences between hypothesis and goal-driven research. Funding streams, intellectual property and exit strategies will also be discussed.
