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.

Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a novel “intelligent” RFA device for destroying solid tumours in situ. This new concept in RFA treatment overcomes the limitations of current technology by providing a safe, versatile and highly effective method for complete tumour ablation ther...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have established
a novel transgenic mouse model suitable for the preclinical discovery of compounds for filaggrin-based disorders.
Targeted or localised drug delivery has long been the major goal of chemotherapy as it provides a more aggressive administration of substance directly to a tumour without the associated systemic side effects. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), has revolutionised this area of cancer treatment, providi...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have discovered that aldosterone antagonists, established drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular and liver disease, have shown significant potential in the treatment and prevention of specific cancers.
Researchers at the University of Dundee have identified a sensitive biomarker for vascular endothelial function that could be used as a predictive test for atherosclerosis, or to effectively monitor treatment of the condition.
Allopurinol, an established drug for the treatment of gout, has shown significant potential in the effective treatment of chronic stable angina by clinicians
at the University of Dundee.
The autotaxin (ATX) enzyme controls levels of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), an important phospholipid involved in cell signalling which has been strongly linked to disease pathology characterised by abnormal cell migration. Modulation of ATX is likely to have a profound effect on lung disease progres...
University of Glasgow scientists have borrowed techniques employed in the semi-conductor industry to pattern the surfaces of either hard or soft materials and render these surfaces less adhesive to cells.
The University of Glasgow have identified a novel way of looking at proteins that bind glycolipids in membranes in a new process called combinatorial glycorray.
Hydrogels can provide an environment for stem cells to expand and differentiate into various cellular types to regenerate the cells and tissue lost through disease.
