GSK Discovery Partnerships in Academic (DPAc) Seminar and Q&A

Andy will be available for 1:1 meetings with researchers who have ideas that have potential to be developed through the DPAc scheme. If you are interested in speaking to Andy, please contact to book a slot and to fill in a short form about what you would like to discuss.

We will welcome Andy Pearce from GSK to introduce us to GSK’s Discovery Partnerships with Academia (DPAc), an innovative approach to drug discovery through integrated partnerships. As a unit within GSK’s research and development organization, Andy’s team are dedicated to creating highly collaborative relationships with leading academic researchers focussed on the discovery of a novel medicine. They believe working closely together throughout the course of a drug discovery project and combining different strengths is a great way to develop new medicines that truly benefit patients.

The concept is simple but powerful: bring together the insight and creativity of the academic world with the drug discovery expertise, capabilities and resources needed to make a medicine.

Further information and project examples are available on the website:

The DPAc programme is agnostic in the therapeutic areas that it will pursue projects in and works with both biopharmaceutical and small molecule modalities, and so speculative enquiries are welcomed in any area.

The seminar will run from 12:00-13:00 and then Andy will be available to ask questions over lunch which will be provided.
