Waters has launched a programme to support scientific innovation in the fields of health and life science research, sports science, food safety, clinical research and environmental protection.

"With the Centers of Innovation Program, we are expanding our emphasis on collaborative relationships with some of the world's foremost scientific experts which, quite frankly, has been a focus of ours for many years," said Tim Riley, vice president and director of the programme. "These scientists are laying significant groundwork for future discoveries and by working closely with them and offering them access to advanced instrument technology, we want to help them push the frontiers of science forward."

The programme will involve partnerships with several scientists including Professor Jeremy Nicholson, Professor and Chair in Biological Chemistry, Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College, London, UK, who works in the field of metabolomic profiling and molecular phenotyping; and Professor James Scrivens, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK who applies advanced mass spectrometry to the field of protein therapeutics.

The programme aims to offer various forms of research support and assistance to these scientists in raising awareness of their ongoing research.
