AstraZeneca PLC and Karolinska Institutet Intend to Create an Integrated Translational Research Centre

AstraZeneca PLC and Karolinska Institutet announced their intention to create an Integrated Translational Research Centre for cardiovascular and metabolic disease and regenerative medicine located at Karolinska Institutet's site in Stockholm, Sweden. The centre will be set up to conduct preclinical and clinical studies aimed at advancing the understanding of cardiovascular and metabolic disease pathophysiology and assessing new drug targets for AstraZeneca's two biotech units, AstraZeneca Innovative Medicines and Early Development (iMed) and MedImmune. Building on the organisations' longstanding collaboration, the Centre will initially run for a period of five years and will be made up of between 20 and 30 scientists, including a number of AstraZeneca scientists. In addition, AstraZeneca will contribute up to $20 million per annum, and Karolinska Institutet will contribute expertise and facilities. The Centre is expected to be operational by mid-2013.
