CK Science Sponsor Kilimanjaro Climb

Mount_Kilimanjaro_2007CK Science, the leading specialist scientific recruitment consultancy, will be sponsoring a charity climb up Kilimanjaro.

The climb has been organised to raise money and awareness for children’s hospice, Hope House in Oswestry. It takes over £4million each year to run the hospice and they are currently caring for over 320 terminally ill children and their families. This doesn’t just include the physical, psychological and spiritual care for the children affected, but also bereavement support, in all its forms, for the siblings and other family members left behind. Hope House also offers bereavement services to the larger community, helping a wide number of children over an extremely traumatic time in their lives. At this time 93 families are receiving post bereavement support.

DSCF0965Hope House currently received only £300,000 of funding from the government each year and the other £3,700,000 is raised by events such as this.

It is hoped that the Kilimanjaro climb will raise a minimum of £4,000. This money will go a small way to help the staff of Hope House ease the final days of terminally ill children.

If you would like to make a donation, please go to www.justgiving.com and search under TRUDY KEDDIE.

University of Reading’s Science Park has Go-Ahead

rdg_logoAs reported on the BBC News website, plans put forward by the University of Reading to build a new state of the art science and innovation park in Berkshire have been given the green light.

The park is set to create many science jobs and according to a spokeswoman from Wokingham Borough Council, it will “bring together innovative knowledge and local and international technology-based business communities”.

Professor Gordon Marshall, the university’s vice chancellor, said: “The University of Reading contributes, at a conservative estimate, over £600m to the regional economy every year.

“The new science and innovation park will ensure that impact continues to grow and delivers tangible benefits to the local and regional economy.”

GSK to Commit £500 Million to UK Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Plant

 

The world-class pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), is set to spend £500 million on a new state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical manufacturing plant and on improving its facility in Ware, Hertfordshire. The move comes after a pre-Budget report reduced the rate of Corporation Tax on 10pc on income arising from UK patents.

It seems that over the past few months, GSK and the drug industry have been in talks with the government about the proposal, which has been labeled a “patent box”. Speaking of the ‘patent box’, Andrew Witty, chief executive of GSK, said: “The patent box is exactly the sort of active, long-term and creative support that we need from the Government to ensure that the UK remains an attractive place for highly skilled sectors such as pharmaceuticals. For GSK, assuming the new regime will apply to patents currently under development it will have the immediate impact of making the UK a priority area for future investments, particularly in manufacturing.”

There is much speculation regarding the location of the biopharma site, but Stevenage, Ulverston and Barnard Castle, where the company has existing sites, are all in the running. Products that could be developed there include Arzerra, for leukaemia, and Syncria, for type 2 diabetes.

This investment is GSK’s largest in the UK for at least a decade and highlights the impact that the new tax regime could have on companies investing in research and development. To read more about this story, please visit the Telegraph website.

CK Science is proud to assist world-class pharmaceutical companies such as GSK to recruit talented individuals. To search for your next science job, please click here.
