Working in partnership with industry, CMAC’s purpose is to transform the development and manufacture of medicines through advanced design and manufacturing technologies including the development of digital twins and microfactories. The four key pillars of CMAC’s program are to: deliver high quality manufacturing research; develop the workforce of the future through skills development and training; to drive effective translation of research into industry and, to continue to develop our world leading facilities and lab of the future infrastructure. As part of the University of Strathclyde, CMAC is also a strategic research partner for the Centre for Process Innovation’s (CPI) recently established Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC).

Established in 2011, CMAC has contributed to a £150m funding portfolio and currently comprises more than 130 staff and researchers, including academics, post docs, over 70 PhD students as well as an experienced support team.
