In this talk I will reflect on the scientific difficulties faced by industrial researchers. These include the inadequacies of animal disease models, the complexity of disease mechanisms even when the underlying cause is a single gene mutation, the neglect of clinical science by medical researchers in academia, and the weakness of clinical pharmacology in universities and teaching hospitals. Finally I will consider industry academia relationships. I believe these are key to future success and I will describe the approaches being adopted by the Francis Crick Institute which is to be opened early in 2016.
