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.

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.
Implementation of a Raman spectral decomposition technique that allows effective identification of complex mixtures. The computationally and memory efficient software enables new functionality to be added to portable hand-held devices.
This sensitive, rapid and highly accurate assay offers a less invasive mechanism for initial diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. This would facilitate early intervention and implementation of an appropriate care package.
Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscepti...
The Molecular Bacterial Load Assay (MBLA) provides a rapid and sensitive way to detect viable bacteria. MBLA opens up new applications in the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of a range of chronic bacterial infections, representing an opportunity to create a completely new platform of bacterial di...
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 developed novel coating strategies to prevent medical device-related infections and complications.
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.
Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a robust and original method for interrogating the activity of single bromodomain proteins, which will assist in exploring their role in the epigenetics of health and disease.
Researchers at the University of Dundee have identified an adjunct to opioid therapy that suppresses the development of tolerance and may mitigate other severe side effects
associated with opioid use.
