The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), a global hub of pharmaceutical process innovation and advanced manufacturing, leads the way for next generation drug manufacture.
The SSPC is a unique collaboration between 24 industry partners, nine Irish research performing organisations and 12 international academic collaborators. SSPC supports a community of over 350 active members across academia and industry nationally and internationally. The role of the SSPC is to link experienced scientists and engineers in academia and the pharmaceutical industry, to address critical scientific and industry focused research challenges. SSPC leads the way for next generation drug manufacture, and spans the entire pharmaceutical production chain from synthesis of the molecule, to the isolation of the material, and the formulation of the medicine. SSPC aims to deliver relevant solutions that address the manufacturing needs of the pharmaceutical companies and, through this, to build a highly innovative pharmaceutical community in Ireland.
SSPC works with industry partners to deliver relevant solutions that address the manufacturing needs of pharmaceutical companies. At a corporate level, SSPC industry partners recognise the power of the collective and can facilitate unique collaborations. APC Ltd., a SSPC spin-out company, has created over 40 highly skilled jobs within the pharmaceutical sector.
