Universities in Spain are full of talent & innovation - lacking is the funding in many cases to continue & translate the science.

 

Aglaris is one of a number of new biotech businesses that have managed to secure outside interest to develop its business plan and spin-out as a stand alone venture with international backers. 

 

A major advantage to investors is the willingness of innovators in Spain to adapt to the economic conditions of the day to get their projects off the ground - what would cost X in Northern Europe, Japan or the US costs Y in Spain.

 

Talent and proof of concept at a fraction of the cost is an attractive motivator for partnerships.

 

Cheers

Medical Research Council - News - MRC welcomes EU Commission’s response to One of Us campaign

Mark J Sandeen's insight:

I would hope the MRC will take a pragmatic view of all data when moving forward. This science is too important to the many millions of people in need to close off doors leading to eventual cures. It will omly provide an upper-hand market to those countries who choose otherwise, and people will resort to medical tourism. All in my opinion.

In confirming the EU's Horizon 2020 planning for hESC research funding the European Commission cited their "Reason" as "Embryonic stem cells are unique and offer the potential for life-saving treatments" while confirming their position on following the "the strict ethical rules and restrictions in place for EU-funded research, including that we will not fund the destruction of embryos"


Unity of the political, economic and social majority will drive growth & jobs, while lowering the burden on health providers with life affirming treatments for the public.
