Developing and testing safe new medicines

The government announced today that life science manufacturing companies can now apply to the £20 million Medicines and Diagnostics Manufacturing Transformation Fund – harnessing the best of UK manufacturing to boost our ability to respond to future pandemics.

  • British scientists'  incredible response to the pandemic reminds us of the vital importance of championing scientific innovation and capabilities. 
  • That is why the government has launched a new £20 million fund designed to strengthen and grow our medicines and diagnostics manufacturing industry, encouraging companies to develop new technologies, build more factories and improve our domestic supply chains – helping create hundreds of highly skilled jobs across the UK. 
  • As we build back better, and more resilient, from the pandemic, this will help ensure UK companies remain in a formidable position to continue to lead the global response to the most pressing challenges of our time.
