Knowledge exchange network aiming to improve health in old age
The UK SPINE project sets out to improve health in old age, by accelerating the development of new and affordable therapies which overcome the generic processes driving ageing and age related diseases.
The objective of our project is to:
Build a network of dedicated KE professionals to ‘glue together’ the 5 Spine Hubs
Build rapid two-way information flows with Spine Network
Capitalise on UK’s leadership in ‘open innovation’ (e. the immediate sharing of all novel reagents, data and knowledge, with everyone, without any restrictions on use) and translation
Build a ‘movement’ comprising researchers, payers, carers, research funders, entrepreneurs and patients, all working together with a shared goal of increasing health-span through the development of novel therapeutics
- Partners (as at November 2020):
University of Oxford
University of Birmingham
University of Dundee
Medicines Discovery Catapult
Francis Crick Institute
