Health Science Scotland, working in partnership with industry, has been successful in securing almost £15 million in private investment and Scottish Government funding through the Scottish Funding Council to create a Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre.
Stratified Medicine Scotland – Innovations Showcase (SMS-IC) is recognised as a key strategic approach to the future diagnosis and treatment of disease. It is being driven by our increased understanding of disease, coupled with the accelerating costs of chronic disease and the burden it is placing on our healthcare systems. Tailoring treatment to those who will benefit most will increase healthcare outcomes and cost effectiveness, and identifying those who will predictably experience adverse reactions will increase safety of interventions. Stratified Medicine depends critically upon information – the integration of existing data sets to form comprehensive characteristics to permit ‘stratification’. The far-sighted investment in Scotland positions Scotland as the best location to drive forward the Stratified Medicine agenda globally.
T-SQUARED was awarded the design, strip out and build/fit-out of the new Innovations Showcase Centre located within the existing Macleod Building within the Thermo Fisher Scientific Inchinnan Campus.
T-SQUARED, working alongside Thermo Fisher Scientific, created the new Innovations Centre which included the following works:
