Certain types of university intellectual property can sometimes prove difficult to commercialise through traditional routes, usually because it is at an early stage of development, or because it presents enough uncertainty for companies to risk an investment.
University Technology’s Easy Access portal offers access to this type of intellectual property at no cost, to enable companies to evaluate it and put it to use quickly, with reduced risk.
Easy Access uses quick and simple licence agreements to fast-track the transfer of knowledge and expertise from Scotland’s universities to industry, so that these technologies may be developed for the benefit of the economy and society.
Through this initiative, our aim is to make it easier for Scottish universities and industry to work together and build strong, long-term relationships with industry partners.

A tetrazine small-molecule trigger for activating prodrugs has been developed. Active molecules, such as a therapeutic drug or imaging fluorophore, can be caged within a polymer nanoparticle for controlled release at a targeted site.
Novel compound series of phosphofructokinase allosteric inhibitors which show excellent efficacy in vitro against the parasite and in mouse models of the disease in vivo. The well characterised inhibitors of this novel trypanosomiasis target have the potential to fill the unmet need for safe, cheap,...
A novel approach shows promising results as a potential therapeutic for allergic conditions, including severe steroid resistant asthma. A peptide has been identified, HpARI, that inactivates and inhibits release of IL-33 a critical step in the development of allergic disease.
Novel compounds displaying high potency and selectivity toward SRC family kinases have been developed. The lead compound eCF506 displays subnanomolar potency against SRC, high selectivity over ABL kinase (1000-fold), optimal pharmacokinetic profile and in vivo target engagement.
Delirium is an acute and severe deterioration in mental function, which affects attention and cognition and poses a significant health problem for older patients in hospital. DelApp is a novel app based cognitive test, which can objectively detect delirium in patients.
This anti-influenza therapy offers potential as anti-viral treatment as well as prevention against all major flu strains, including influenza A infection.
An improved method for robust and rapid production of large quantities of homogeneous mast cells suitable for research, drug discovery and cell therapy to treat allergy, anaphylaxis and autoimmune disorders.
This new approach converts chemotherapy agents into prodrugs, significantly reducing systemic toxicity, and enabling local activation only at tumour sites where a specific catalyst, palladium, has been implanted.
Sperm Motility Enhancers: A Novel Strategy for Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) based on the direct relationship between human fertility and sperm motility,the University of Dundee has successfully identified FDA-approved compounds with robust and effective stimulation on patient sperm motilit...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.
