astrazeneca plc (AZNCF) Key Developments

AstraZeneca and UK's Medical Research Council Enter into Five-Year Early Drug Discovery Collaboration

AstraZeneca announced that it had entered into a five-year early drug discovery collaboration with the UK Medical Research Council (MRC). A new research facility, the AstraZeneca MRC UK Centre for Lead Discovery, will be set up as part of the new collaboration, which is expected to be completed in 2016. Within the scope of the collaboration, the MRC is committed to fund up to 15 new screening projects annually. Meanwhile, AstraZeneca is to grant access to over two million molecules in its compound library. The five-year time frame was set up as an initial period for the project, part of which is set to be initiated within AstraZeneca's existing research facilities next year. However, the new centre will be located within the Cambridge Biomedical Campus where it is to provide screening facilities and review research proposals. As part of the deal, AstraZeneca has secured the rights to enter into a potential negotiation to license drugs that are been developed as a result of the collaboration, according to its therapeutic areas of interest. Only after this option has been explored by the firm can MRC and its scientists "negotiate with other parties".

AstraZeneca and MRC Enter Strategic Collaboration to Create New Centre for Early Drug Discovery in Cambridge, UK

The Medical Research Council (MRC) and AstraZeneca announced that they have entered into a groundbreaking collaboration aimed at better understanding the mechanisms of human disease. The collaboration will see the creation of a joint research facility at AstraZeneca's new RandD centre in Cambridge in the UK. The AstraZeneca MRC UK Centre for Lead Discovery will sit within the new AstraZeneca site at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, due to be completed in 2016. It will see world class MRC-supported researchers working side-by-side with scientists in AstraZeneca's high throughput screening group, identifying new methods to better understand a range of diseases and potential treatment options. As part of the collaboration, which will run for an initial period of five years, academic researchers will benefit from unprecedented access to over two million molecules in AstraZeneca's compound library, as well as its high throughput screening facilities at the new site. Research proposals will be submitted to the MRC that will independently assess and select the best scientific proposals from a broad range of therapy areas and diseases. The MRC will fund up to 15 screening projects per year to be carried out at the Centre for Lead Discovery. AstraZeneca will have the first option to enter a negotiation to license any resulting drug discovery programmes of relevance to the company's therapeutic areas of interest. If this option is not used, the academics can negotiate with other parties.

AstraZeneca Forms Research Partnership with Shenzhen University Health Science Center

AstraZeneca has announced the formation of a research partnership with Shenzhen University Health Science Center. The partnership will focus on pre-clinical research of treatments targeting chronic kidney disease (CKD) by bringing together scientists from both organisations. The first target of the partnership is expected to be potential treatments for diabetic nephropathy.
