About City
Dundee is called the “City of Discovery” in honor of the ship built in a local yard on Tayside, used by Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton on their successful scientific expedition to the Antarctic (1901 – 04). In the future, however, the nickname may change to recognize the pioneering work done by the Drug Discovery Unit (DDU) in the University of Dundee. The DDU’s ultimate aim is to find “effective targets and pathways” that eventually lead to the development of cures for killer diseases, in-house and in partnership with leading pharmaceutical companies.
