Scottish Government awards £3m to University of Glasgow for personalised medicine research

New funding has been awarded to the University of Glasgow for the development of personalised medicines. The £3m investment will be used to fund imaging equipment to study the genetics of large groups of patients to find ways of predicting which medicines will be efficient and effective.

Announcing the Scottish Government funding on 2 March 2014, health secretary Alex Neil said: “Personalised medicine holds huge potential in the development of new treatments for diseases such as cancer. It is one of the most significant advances in 21st century health research as it looks to move away from the one-treatment-fits-all approach to one where a patient’s specific genetic make-up determines the most appropriate treatment.”
