About EPP

Our Story . . . .

Edinburgh Pharmaceutical Processes [“EPP”], was founded in 1992 by Dr Stephen Newlands, originally an industrial research chemist with BP and thereafter a pharmaceutical research and development chemist with a Glaxo subsidiary (Macfarlan Smith Ltd) in Edinburgh.

Stephen founded EPP drawing on the foundations of his previous industrial experience coupled with a desire to create a sustainable contract research organisation (CRO) utilising the considerable local graduate scientific resource associated with the leading universities situated near Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh.
