Cancer Research Technology, Birmingham University and Alta Innovations Collaborate to Commercialize Cancer Research
Aug 9 16
Cancer Research Technology (CRT) has signed an agreement with the University of Birmingham and its commercial division Alta Innovations (Alta) to work in collaboration to develop and commercialise the university’s cancer research. The two-year agreement is focused on speeding up commercialisation of the University of Birmingham’s major cancer research into diagnostics, treatments and technologies that can benefit patients. Under the deal, Alta will work in close cooperation with the scientists at the university with an aim to recognise most promising cancer research opportunities. CRT, on the other hand, will use its expertise to commercialise cancer research and its vast network across the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry in order to identify and translate promising research at the university. CRT will work with Alta and the University of Birmingham’s academics in a bid to promising cancer opportunities, along with the major clinical expertise available and the university’s primary research in areas such as immunology and genomics. The financial benefits received from the research will be shared between CRT and the University of Birmingham. CRT will use its financial returns to invest in Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research, while the University of Birmingham will be used for the benefit of the educational charity.

May 31 16
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced plans to extend its technology collaboration with the University of Birmingham in the UK at the University's new Phenome Centre. Thermo Fisher will supply a range of advanced mass spectrometry instruments to be used for the centre's research in metabolic phenotyping and metabolomics studies. In collaboration with Birmingham Health Partners, the Phenome Centre Birmingham is an GBP8M facility that aims to provide University of Birmingham scientists with the tools needed to conduct large-scale metabolic phenotyping research. The centre's goal is to better understand biochemical mechanisms, targets and biomarkers associated with aging and disease, to enable a stratified medicine approach that will enhance patient outcomes. The new facility is equipped with a range of instruments for untargeted and targeted assays including the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Focus Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap, TSQ Quantiva Triple Quadrupole and Orbitrap Elite Hybrid Ion Trap-Orbitrap mass spectrometers, each equipped with a Thermo Scientific liquid chromatography system. In addition, a Q Exactive Plus Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometer will be used for training purposes in the Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre. Thermo Fisher provided the University of Birmingham with prototype technology for evaluation, supported several PhD students on metabolomics related research projects and collaborated with the Phenome Centre Birmingham in the Metabolomics Training Centre.
