GlaxoSmithKline's Tres Cantos Open Lab

Year Established: 2001

GlaxoSmithKline has an R&D facility in Tres Cantos, Spain, which has been dedicated to developing new treatments to combat diseases of the developing world (DDW) since it was established in 2001. Since that time, GSK has worked in a number of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) with more than 100 scientists at the site partly funded by GSK's partners. In 2009, GSK announced its intention to open up the Tres Cantos facility further, to become a global centre of excellence that brings new partners to the facility and stimulates research and collaboration on neglected diseases where research is still too fragmented.

GSK’s open laboratory has space for visiting scientists from universities, not-for-profit partnerships and other research institutes - such as the Barcelona Centre for International Health Research (CRESIB), Weill Cornell Medical College in the US, and Imperial College, London - to work on their projects for the developing world, learn from our expertise and share our world-class facilities.
