£300m GSK Factory could Create Hundreds

The international Pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) have indicated that Barnard Castle in County Durham as one of the three possible locations for its first UK-based biopharmaceutical factory, potentially bringing hundreds of new science and pharmaceutical jobs to the area. The other possible sites for the factory are in Stevenage, in Hertfordshire, and Ulverston, in Cumbria.

A spokesman from the GSK plant in Barnard Castle said: “It is far too early to say when or where a biopharm plant would be built. GSK will consider a range of options as its pipeline of new biopharmaceutical products progresses and as implementation of the Patent Box scheme gets closer. The timing of the decision on where to build a biopharmaceutical plant is dependent upon the progress through GSK Research and Development of new biopharmaceutical products which is difficult to predict. It is certainly not likely to be taken in the short term.”

The new Biopharmaceutical factory has the potential to bring hundreds of new science and pharmaceutical jobs to the area. With an office in Durham and access to all the latest scientific vacancies in the area, CK Science is well placed to help you find the perfect science job for you.

UK Science Faces Funding Cut Backs

scientist

According to the BBC, The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), one of the UK’s largest funding councils, is due to cut 25% of its research studentships and fellowships. Critics warn that this move could harm the future of UK science by reducing investment in the next generation of researchers.

Unfortunately the SFTC has been forced to make cut backs due to the global financial crisis and the fall of the value of the pound. The council described the cuts to its funding as “regrettable but necessary”. According to the Royal Astronomical Society, the cut backs have also lead to SFTC to withdraw from some existing research projects, stating that by 2012, facilities including the UK Infrared Telescope in Hawaii and the Gemini observatory would have “lost all UK support”.

Speaking of the funding cuts, Nuclear physicist, Professor Patrick Regan, said that Britain could be left unable of training the technicians it needs to develop the planned next generation of nuclear power plants.

Eli Lilly Given Green Light for Long-lasting Zyprexa

Lilly

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a long-lasting injectable version of Eli Lilly’s antipsychotic blockbuster Zyprexa.

Zyprexa Relprevv was found to be effective in controlling systems of schizophrenia, including hallucinations, delusions, apathy and social withdrawal.

Schizophrenia patients currently take the the Zyprexa pill daily, but the new formulation will allow patients to visit their doctors only every two to four weeks to receive their injection. It is hoped that this longer-lasting version will make it easier for patients to remain on the medication and for doctors to track that they are doing so.
