Warwick Effect Polymers wins University Spin-Out Award

Warwick Effect Polymers won the Best University Spin-Out Company Award from a consortium of business support agencies in the United Kingdom. Started by Professor David M. Huddleton of the University of Warwick, the company has recently filed for patents on its Poly PEG technology, a living controlled polymerization. The company plans to get into conjugates which link polyethylene glycol (PEG) with lysine and cysteine residues.

Might be interesting to know the British analog to the Bayh-Dole Act in the United States.
