We’re working to tackle some of the world’s biggest health challenges, by standardising and improving diagnosis and treatment techniques to help all UK NHS hospitals provide world-class cancer care by 2020, and reducing attrition rates in drug development, as well as working on new therapies like novel antibiotics, to get them to patients more quickly.
In 2018 we launched our new Metrology for Medical Physics Centre (MEMPHYS) which will support rapid acceleration for the development and implementation of innovative early diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, for conditions such as cancer, dementia and heart disease into clinical practice.
Working to discover, screen and validate new classes of antimicrobials with Ingenza and the University of Plymouth, to tackle antimicrobial resistance
Our new imaging system for breast cancer diagnosis has the potential to provide a standardised, high-quality image, while being more comfortable and lower cost, with no side effects
NPL is helping the UK continue to be a world leader in translating life sciences research, accelerating access to new diagnosis and treatment techniques, and helping to support rapid adoption of advanced healthcare technologies across the country. We tackle some of the world’s biggest health challenges, from reducing attrition rates in drug development, to treating cancer and dementia, to creating new antibiotics.
