“The Biosphere was an ideal location for us, being close to the university and an outstanding hospital trust, as well as easy international and national connections via the airport and train networks, which are both under 20 minutes away. The flexible space is surrounded by a growing £1.5bn eco-system, ideal for a young company looking to grow. By being based on Newcastle Helix we have access to world-class science research, national facilities and complementary organisations which make it a very attractive location for an early stage company with ambitions to collaborate and grow”.
“Too many people think you need to be based down south to be successful. We want to grow AMLo’s operations and international presence from Newcastle and play our part in creating jobs and opportunities for local people. We currently employ fewer than 10 people, but we have significant growth aims for our Newcastle office and laboratory.
Our priority is to get AMBLor to market to help improve outcomes for melanoma patients and in the longer term we are looking to expand this product range for other cancers. We are delighted to join and help grow the life science sector in Newcastle.”
Dr Marie Labus, Chief Executive Officer of AMLo Biosciences
