Work of drug research collaboration shown on film

A new video has been produced to highlight the work of a research centre at the University of Manchester dedicated to tackling inflammatory disease.

The Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research (MCCIR) is a collaboration between the University and pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.

More than 70 scientists work at the centre trying to understand more about how inflammatory disease works, in order to tackle illnesses such as asthma, cancer, hepatitis and chronic heart disease.

Further information is available on the AstraZeneca and MCCIR websites.
