The University of Strathclyde’s Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation Centre (CMAC) is a world-class international hub for manufacturing research and training. Working in partnership with industry, its purpose is to transform current manufacturing processes into the medicine supply chain of the future.
The Centre uses revolutionary manufacturing techniques developed to speed up the process of bringing new drugs to market, and help make precision medicine an economically viable reality.
