Scot Bio natural blue colouring pioneers win collaboration award

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh and biotech firm Scot Bio have won a prestigious Scottish Life Sciences Award for their pioneering collaboration on natural blue colourants.

Polly Van Alstyne, Chief Operating Officer at Scot Bio, said: “This award is a welcome endorsement of the hard work carried out by everyone at Scot Bio and the University of Edinburgh, and a clear example of how collaboration between academia and the private sector can have huge potential in the creation of high value jobs and in commercialising intellectual property.”
