For today’s #TBT we’re taking you on a journey back to the 1960s. Here’s one of our researchers at work in the lab at Glaxo's Greenford facility.

Vast numbers of different compounds are stored at our #compound #library. This facility provides access to a diverse library of millions of compounds, which can help us to discover new medicines faster.

Do you know what a compound library is? Here’s a #sneakpeek of our library in the #UK where you can see robotic arms selecting various #compounds. But why is this an important part of the #drugdiscovery process? Follow our #ThroughTheLabs journey this week to find out…

Ever wonder how #vaccines are created?
First, our #scientists study the #immune system to see how they can help prevent a #disease.
Next, we produce the #vaccine #antigen in large quantities from small flasks of seed stock into tanks.
In the formulation stage, we combine all the vaccine’s ingredients to improve its effectiveness.
Lastly, the finished product is filled into #syringes, #vials or tubes depending on the vaccine.

Despite progress to fight #malaria, millions of people continue to suffer every year. We’re helping by researching #medicine and #vaccines, supporting #community #prevention and #health worker training and supplying anti-malarial medicines.

The fight begins in our labs. At our #research and development facility at Tres Cantos in #Spain, we dedicated #scientists in our malaria discovery unit. These scientists, who come from inside and outside #GSK, are carrying out #innovative #research focused on the very earliest stages of #discovery and have potential medicines that are moving into clinical development. These researchers get to see almost all of the medicines that are in development across the global malaria community because our #technology gives researchers a chance to determine their compound’s potential to kill the malaria parasite quickly.
If we maintain our momentum against malaria, we are hopeful that we can finally conquer this #ancient killer!

From a passing #headache to chronic back #pain: most of us have experienced pain at some point in our lives. At #GSK, we’re determined to break through the pain barrier, and through a dedicated team of #scientists in our #Consumer #Healthcare business, we are working hard to better understand why we experience pain; and to develop more effective pain relief treatments for people around the world.
We have a team of over 100 #scientists working hard to both improve existing pain #relief #treatments and develop the next generation of pain #medicines. We’re also looking beyond traditional medicines, and are exploring the potential of digital #technology to deliver targeted pain management. Devices can already deliver electrical pulses to help ease pain. But we’re looking at exciting advances that could enable us to pre-empt and prevent pain before it strikes.

Our archivists have found the first photo of one of our #labs! Taken in the 1880s, it shows the Allen and Hanburys basement lab in Plough Court, #London. #ThroughTheLabs

Most of us will know someone who suffers from #asthma and uses an #inhaler regularly to control their condition. Inhalers are also used to treat other #respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (#COPD). These two diseases affect people worldwide.

At first glance, an inhaler may look like a simple piece of plastic. But inside, a complicated process and an internal ‘engine’ operate seamlessly to ensure the patient receives exactly the right dose of #medicine every time.

At GSK, we continue to innovate and advance the #science in this field, and are committed to being at the forefront of inhaler #technology.
Not bad for a simple piece of plastic. 😏

This is one of our Shopper #Science Labs which enable us to study what #consumers want and how they #shop. The blend of scientific tools, including bespoke #biometrics and eye-tracking #technology, makes these facilities leaders in this area.
We have a strong passion for the science behind shopper marketing because we are a science-led company and science is not restricted to the R&D labs; it’s at the heart of the company. 📸: @pww_design | #BehindTheScience #ThroughTheLabs #Research #Marketing #Consumer #Healthcare #Tech #STEM #GSK #design

Besides good timing and even better luck, it’s hard to pinpoint what it takes to be an #innovator. Innovators tend to be creative, exceptionally persistent, and prepared to take calculated risks. 👩🏾‍🔬👨🏻‍🔬
At GSK, #innovation happens constantly. We have people working in R&D in our search for new #medicines, #vaccines and consumer #healthcare products. We are developing some amazing innovations, from the world’s first vaccine candidate for the prevention of malaria to a pipeline of potential next generation immuno-oncology therapies to fight #cancer. These have been achieved by a commitment to an innovation culture and ground-breaking #science from the very top of our organization.

#TBT to 30 years ago when Marty St. Clair discovered she’d made a scientific breakthrough in #HIV research! Can you imagine a scientific discovery filling a basketball stadium? Marty's HIV research did exactly that! | #BehindTheScience #Innovation #Science #Research #sciencerules #scienceiscool #instascience
