Why we do it
Our mission is to transform the healthcare landscape of London and the Greater South East and advance cutting-edge health and life sciences innovation.

How we do it
We work to support companies, academics, researchers, public bodies and regulators across the ecosystem.
Our work spans all modalities of human healthcare and life sciences: drug discovery, advanced therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics, and digital health, which includes technologies that support prevention, management, healthcare delivery and systems improvement. We are increasingly involved in data science and companies that use techniques such as AI and machine learning to derive new insights, products and services.
