India's Department of Science and Technology is to invest £2 million into the UK’s ISIS neutron and muon source facility.

The Science and Technology Facilities Council announced on 8 November that it had signed a five-year deal with India’s Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research.

As part of the deal, India will invest £2m into the development of Zoom, an instrument that will be used to study how drugs interact with the body. The funding will also be used to understand the properties of industrial materials such as polymers, emulsions, metals and alloys, the STFC said.
