The Company is uniquely positioned to access commercially valuable patent estates and development programmes, initially from the Institute, but with a wider horizon for pipeline acquisition.
Managed by a team of experienced individuals drawn from commercial, scientific and regulatory backgrounds, the team also has experience in the establishment, growth and exit of small to medium sized companies.
