Blood Test TubesTogether with the Research and Enterprise Team (RED), LD3 helps academics engage early with industry.

LD3 partnerships has considerably increased over the past 5 years and includes:

  • Leading pharmaceutical companies
  • Small Biotech companies
  • Design consultancy companies
  • Leading makers of medical devices

Early company engagement facilitates a more rapid progression of projects through the translation pipeline and provides a better understanding of deliverables, milestones and timelines, three keys to successful projects.

IAA funding is currently supporting engagement with:

  • ThermoFisher
