INVESTMENT IN RESEARCH

Novo Nordisk has entered into a research

collaboration with the University of Oxford

on focusing on Type 2 diabetes investing

£115m in new research centre over a

period of 10 years.

The partnership will enable scientists

from Novo Nordisk and University

of Oxford to collaborate to discover

innovative approaches for treating Type

2 diabetes. The Novo Nordisk Research

Centre Oxford will employ up to 100 Novo

Nordisk researchers, based in an Oxford

University research centre. The centre

will focus on innovation within early stage

research that has potential to substantially

impact future treatment of Type 2 diabetes

and its complications.

Chief Science Officer and Executive

Vice President of Novo Nordisk, Mads

Krogsgaard Thomsen commented on

the investment saying, "This collaboration

brings together some of the world's

sharpest minds in the field of diabetes

to seek new targets for therapeutic

innovation. It combines Novo Nordisk's

90 years' experience in developing

treatments for diabetes with the expertise

of world leading scientists from the

University of Oxford. Our vision is that

the unique combination of industrial and

academic know-how will eventually lead

to a new generation of treatments to

improve the lives of people with Type 2

diabetes."

The collaboration will actively seek

to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas

between academic researchers from

the University of Oxford and researchers

employed by Novo Nordisk with funds to

sponsor the collaborative research.

Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of

Medicine, University of Oxford, added,

"We see the collaboration with Novo

Nordisk as an outstanding opportunity

to mix competence embedded at

our campus with Novo Nordisk's

groundbreaking research and results in

diabetes. This collaboration underlines

the importance of shared research and

cutting-edge science across boundaries.

Employees will have the opportunity for

daily interaction to share knowledge and

insights that will potentially produce new

medicines for people living with type 2

diabetes and its complications".

James D. Johnson, Professor, PhD,

has been appointed head of the Novo

Nordisk Research Centre Oxford.

VOLUNTEERS

NEEDED

T1DUK is looking to recruit participants

in a new exploration of the peripheral

immune system in subjects with

New Onset T1 Diabetes (NOT1D).

Volunteers can be male or female

aged between18-40 who have been

diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the

last 6 weeks.

Type 1 Diabetes UK Immunotherapy

Consortium (T1D UK) was set up in 2015

with major funding from Diabetes UK and

JDRF to promote, develop and support

immunotherapy research in T1D. It is

due to establish and train a network of

15 Level 1 Research Sites strategically

distributed across the UK that will work

in partnership with the ADDRESS 2

recruitment infrastructure.

There are two main cores to T1D

UK, a clinical engagement and training

core (CET) led by Prof Colin Dayan from

Cardiff University, and a mechanistic core

with five specialist laboratories located

throughout the UK, led by Tim Tree from

Kings College, London.

The study's aim is to gain a better

understanding of the processes that may

lead to the immune system's destruction

of insulin-producing beta cells, which

help to control bloodsugar levels.
