Open for Collaboration – An Academic Platform for Drug Discovery & Development at SciLifeLab

Per Arvidsson, Director Drug Discovery & Development, SciLifeLab, Karolinska Institutet

The Science for Life Laboratory Drug Discovery and Development Platform (SciLifeLab DDD) reaches out to Swedish academia with an industry standard infrastructure for academic drug discovery, supported by earmarked funds from the Swedish government. In this review, we describe the build-up and operation of the platform, and reflect on our first two years of operation, with the ambition to share learnings and best practice with academic drug discovery centers globally. We also discuss how the Swedish Teachers Exemption Law, an internationally unique aspect of the innovation system, has shaped the operation. Furthermore, we address how this investment in infrastructure and expertise can be utilized to facilitate international collaboration between academia and industry in the best interest of those ultimately benefiting the most from translational pharmaceutical research – the patients.
