Leicester Institute for Pharmaceutical Innovation - from molecules to practice

Welcome to the Leicester Institute for Pharmaceutical Innovation (LIPI). Our institute has been founded as a hub for the research of Leicester School of Pharmacy in collaboration with researchers from multiple disciplines across De Montfort University Leicester (DMU). We are driving towards innovative research promoting inclusion and diversity across all focus areas.
