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.

    Despite being the most "Scottish" of products, relatively little of the whisky distilled in this country is produced by companies ultimately controlled from within Scotland. What is more, the externally-controlled sector expanded significantly during the 1970s in a manner unseen since the arrival of the North American distilling giants in the immediate post-war years, once again raising the spectre of foreign domination of our (original) national drink. This brief economic perspective considers the change ownership profile of Scottish whisky distilleries and the promise of investment from the Far East.
