Cell Control in a Petri Dish (CCPD) Collaborative Network

CCPD-logo-s 
 

CCPD Mission Statement

The Cell Control in a Petri Dish Network brings together scientists from the chemistry and cell biology (including stem cells, cancer and tissue engineering) disciplines with SMEs with the ultimate goal of developing cell based (human, non-human primate, animal) screening tools.  Using chemistry based methods, small molecule libraries and responsive molecules for monitoring, biologists will explore their potential to drive and/or monitor their influence on cell phenotype to provide tools to develop these cell based screens.

The network is supported by the Research Councils UK by funding awarded to Drs Weng Chan and Felicity Rose, based within the School of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham. It aims to expand beyond its current membership (see link below) to establish a forum in which both academics and industrial end-users identify and carry out highly speculative but specific research needs.  A key output will be the identification of intellectual property and commercialization pathways for this research.

The network supports collaboration via meetings, conferences and sandpit events; to join the network, please contact Dr Weng Chan (weng.chan@nottingham.ac.uk).
