GSK invest 10 million euros at their facility in Sligo, Ireland

Pharmatimes have reported that GlaxoSmithKline has decided to keep open its facility in Sligo Ireland and will instead invest 10 million euros into the plant.

GSK acquired the facility in Sligo when GSK bought the dermatology specialist Stiefel Laboratories for up to $3.6 billion in 2009.

There will be some jobs cuts at the plant over the next two years, which currently employs 180 people, with a “gradual” reduction to 120. However, GlaxoSmthKline estimated there would be an additional 50 jobs added in 2014 as the plant improved skills and capacity.

UK stem cell pioneer shares Nobel Prize in Medicine

The BBC has reported that two pioneers of stem cell research have shared the Nobel prize for medicine and/ or physiology

John Gurdon from the UK and Shinya Yamanaka from Japan have been jointly awarded the prize for their work in transforming specialised cells into stem cells, which can become any other type of cell in the body. It is hoped the techniques discovered will revolutionise medicine by using a sample of a person’s skin to create stem cells.

Prof Anthony Hollander, the head of cellular and molecular medicine at the University of Bristol, said: “This joint Nobel Prize traces and celebrates the wonderful scientific journey from John Gurdon’s pioneering early work to the sensational discovery of somatic cell reprogramming by Shinya Yamanaka. It’s fantastic news for stem cell research.”

The prize was awarded this morning at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, and is the most coveted award in medical science. The Nobel committee said these winners  had “revolutionised” science

Offshore Energy Network to Create Jobs

Renewable energy group Norstec has been back by the government with the aim of creating thousands of jobs in the North East, reports the Northern Echo.

Norstec is a group of several companies in the North East, including the Deep Ocean Group and JDR Cables. The companies met to discuss how to make the best use of the potential of the sector which is expected to create around 1,000 jobs in the area. This is a major boost to offshore wind power as it shows a concerted effort by the government to back the sector.

The Prime Minister has stated that “close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.” The Climate Change Secretary then added “The offshore wind industry represents a massive growth opportunity for the UK and our neighbours around the northern seas, bringing jobs and reenergising once thriving industrial heartlands on the east coast and beyond.”

Recycle, Whisky leftovers to provide fuel for cars

The BBC has reported that Tullibardine Distillery in Perthshire has teamed up with Celtic Renewables, to recycle Whisky leftovers from the Scottish distillery to provide fuel for cars.

Tullibardine Distillery will provide the leftovers, including draff and pot ales, which will then be fed on by bacteria to produce butanol, a fuel that can be used to run vehicles.

Napier University’s Biofuel Research Centre, (Celtic Renewables is a spin off company from the University) has already shown that the right bacteria can feed on those by-products to produce butanol – a direct replacement for vehicle fuel.

Now Celtic Renewables, and independent malt whisky producer Tullibardine have signed a memorandum of understanding.  Together they will apply the process to thousands of tonnes of the distillery’s leftovers.

The project is being supported by a grant from the Scottish government’s Zero Waste Scotland initiative.

Celtic Renewables said it eventually aimed to build a processing plant in Scotland, with the hope of building an industry that could be worth £60m a year.
