Medicines Discovery Catapult is a national facility connecting the UK community to accelerate innovative drug discovery.
Drug Delivery Services: Improve your Drug's Efficacy
Our range of drug delivery services are designed to help your drug discovery project succeed - utilising multi-disciplinary approaches to optimise delivery to targets.
Drug delivery systems that combine polymer science, pharmaceutics, and molecular biology have the potential to improve patient outcomes by reducing off-target toxicity and enabling drugs to be dosed to maximise therapeutic effect.
Creating a medicine delivery system using carriers, liposomes, microbubbles, nanoparticles, & transdermal administration via microencapsulation can increase drug efficacy, decrease toxicity, for greater convenience or for site-specific delivery. We can meet your requirements with our:
Use data to understand and predict the increased effectiveness of bioinformatics.
We apply best-practice bioinformatics services to test hypothesis or exploring large data sets, even working with you to develop new methods if needed. Our broad bioinformatics expertise across a range of research groups means we are likely to be familiar with your research topic and the best methods to analyse your data. Supporting your projects with our expertise in:
Discovering and connecting data to build new algorithms, AI and machine learning approaches.
Our deep expertise in scientific data analysis, information extraction, natural language processing, and machine learning enables the community to access our established expertise.
Using our informatics skills, extensive proprietary databases and algorithms, and market understanding, we can help validate and drive adoption of new data-driven approaches for:
3D organoid & organ-on-a-chip technology is helping to humanise our approach to drug discovery - with more sophisticated models of human organ systems.

Cutting-Edge Mass Spectrometry Technology
To you achieve your goals, we have invested in cutting edge, direct-from-sample mass spectrometry technologies that enable us to rapidly measure biological ‘signatures’ from scarce molecular samples and look for spatial changes in drug and metabolite distribution. In addition, to provide the highest possible resolution, we have established the more traditional MS methods that use liquid chromatography to reduce the complexity of biological samples for analysis.
We have the following Mass Spectrometry Technology:
Identifying Biomarkers Characteristics for Disease and Responses to Drugs
Improve your understanding of drugs, disease and drug-target interactions within patients with a partner who can offer you technology and resources for biomarkers.
We can help you translate drugs from pre-clinical to a clinical setting, identifying drug dosages for patient benefit, select patients and treatment decisions, with our expert team on hand to give you scientific and commercial support.
Our biomarkers service provides you access to:
