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 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.
Drug-eluting stents (DES) have significantly reduced rates of restenosis compared to their bare metal counterparts and are now increasingly the treatment of choice for percutaneous coronary revascularisations. Despite this, they are not suitable for all cases and anti-platelet therapy can still be r...
Natural products are perceived to be too difficult to use in the ultra-high throughput screening approach preferred by pharmaceutical companies. We have developed a method which allows high throughput screening of anticancer agents directly on cells from samples of ovarian tumours from patients...
Cancer is one of the biggest killers world wide and its prevalence is set to increase due to aging population and changes in lifestyle. The major problem for the successful treatment of cancer, is the development of chemotherapeutic resistance by the cancer cells which results in metastasis of the c...
This quick and simple method for the culture of rat embryonic stem (ES) cells does not rely on the use of feeder cells, making it more cost effective, and easier to use for ES cell manipulation (in vitro) and generation of transgenic rats and knockouts.
