Life science research expertise supports business growth



Life sciences businesses can tap into the expertise of one of the UK’s leading research facilities through its consultancy services offering.

Since it opened in 2019, the National Horizons Centre (NHC), a UK centre of excellence for the bioscience industry, has established itself as a premium facility for businesses in the sector who want to access industry-focused expertise and training.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHC, based at Teesside University’s Darlington campus at Central Park, has played a key role in helping to train the region’s vaccine manufacturing workforce.

Alongside training and facilities, the NHC also works with business to offer consultancy in three key areas aligned to its research expertise.

These are:

  • Disease specific research – discovering diseases earlier and developing novel therapeutic treatments to improve patient outcomes.
  • Biomanufacturing – developing novel treatments, and optimising existing ones, delivering treatments to patients faster, safer and more affordably.
  • Digital analytics and machine learning – harnessing data analysis and modelling to support the discovery, development and delivery of life-changing medicines.

Dr Jen Vanderhoven, director of the National Horizons Centre, says:  “Our staff at the National Horizons Centre have a vast array of expertise and experience of working with businesses to ensure they are at the forefront of innovation.

“Our delivery model of research partnership and training is bringing together industry, academia and talent to create real-world impact.

“The NHC was established to grow the potential of the UK’s life science sector and we are keen to work alongside more regional, national and international organisations to find solutions to the challenges in the industry.”
