Innovative Therapeutics for Ageing consortium (iTAc)

Started in 2018, is a national public-private partnership to accelerate the discovery and development of therapeutics for ageing. The consortium will provide industry with a pipeline of novel clinically de-risked drug targets and assets, in a large and rapidly growing area of therapeutic need (age related morbidities). Expertise across 5 major complementary UK centres forms the core of this initiative: The Francis Crick Institute, OxU (and partners Oxford AHSC, Oxford AHSN & Oxford BRC), University of Dundee, University of Birmingham and Birmingham Health Partners, and the Medicines Discovery .
