Oxfordshire Science Park to Create 1,000 Jobs

Culham Science Park in Oxfordshire is set to expand, with up to 1,000 new science and technology jobs.

Three new research labs and office space have been discussed at the Abingdon site, and a planning application has been sent to the council. The 1,000 jobs include skilled and unskilled workers, including the construction of the new buildings and the scientists then working in them once they have been completed.

The created jobs are set to expand the workforce at the Science Park by 50%, to near 3,000. Should planning permission be granted, private companies will be invited to move operations to the park, before construction begins. Currently with 2,000 staff and 45 companies, the Culham Science Park is part of Science Vale UK, which includes two other Oxfordshire sites employing over 10,000 people between them. The expanding of the Abingdon site can only boost the area’s scientific centre credentials further.

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
