We are developing our research portfolio in collaboration with academics and industry.

Our current portfolio of projects

The ALBORADA Drug Discovery Institute is collaborating with academic researchers globally on a range of proteostasis focused projects. For a number of these projects we are collaborating with industry in order to access additional resources.

We are taking a broad approach to target identification, seeking novel targets and ideas from across the UK and globally. If you have molecular targets or hypotheses that could lead to new therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases, you can learn more about collaborating with the ALBORADA DDI here.
