Professor Nicholas Turner will lead a “Prosperity Partnership” for
Developing new biocatalytic technologies for chemical manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry
This AstraZeneca, Prozomix and The University of Manchester Prosperity Partnership will bring together their expertise to design and develop novel chemical manufacturing technologies, based upon engineered biocatalysts, with the aim of producing new therapeutic complex molecules.
Achieving this goal will require the generation of a new toolbox of biocatalysts that are able to catalyse particularly demanding transformations. This project has the potential to bring new medicines to patients, in addition to developing more sustainable manufacturing processes that reduce the impact on the environment.
