Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    The revival in economic activity in Scotland which occurred in 1978 is unlikely to be maintained during 1979.The overall index of industrial production for Scotland rose by 1.7 points between the first and second quarters of 1978 to 107.8. It must be emphasised however, that these indices are provisional and subject to revision, as in the case of the first quarter index which has been revised downwards from that quoted in the last Commentary. Detailed analyses of the latest Scottish production, unemployment, and investment data are provided.
