How do you turn world-leading British science into medicines? – Telegraph.co.uk

Ministers will have their work cut out as the UK has too often failed to translate medical breakthroughs into blockbusters made in Britain. An example is monoclonal antibodies, a common component of biological drugs discovered at Cambridge University in the Seventies. It led to a Nobel Prize for the scientists involved and has since exploded into a field worth around 70bn globally today Continue reading
