UCL Population Health Sciences


Innovation & Enterprise

Research strengths within the Faculty of Population Health Sciences make it well-placed to develop cutting edge innovations and enterprise that deliver real patient benefits.

The four key areas the Faculty covers to achieve its innovation and enterprise ambitions to turn discoveries into useful products and services that will improve healthcare nationally and globally is through: 

Entrepreneurship, Partnerships, Licensing and Consultancy. 

Developments such as gene and cell therapy, combinations of personalised cell and immunotherapy, genomic medicine-supported patient stratification, and medicines for rare diseases provide new product opportunities and the opportunity for collaborations at the interface between research and industry.
