A black and white image of a crystal formation

This crystal is grown from glycine, an amino acid found in most proteins. Through better understanding of the crystallisation process, we aim to improve medicine manufacture, such as enhancing the effectiveness of drugs, benefitting patients, and advancing production, benefitting companies. Collaboration across universitiesand with industry enables us to understand real-world challenges, ensuring our work has impact where most required.
