MiroBio specialises in therapeutic antibody therapies aimed at improving lives and outcomes for patients with autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. The company was started by a team of immunologists from Oxford University and it has spent the last 2 decades peering into the mysteries of how T-cells signal and the associated processes. As a private project of ex-university researchers, MiroBio attracts a healthy package of investment from commercial and academic sources. Based in Oxford itself, the company still benefits from close links to the academic community and ongoing clinical experiments in the area.
PsiOxus Therapeutics Ltd is a trans-Atlantic company with several products at the development stage for the treatment of various cancers. They have a focus on immunotherapeutic approaches to providing oncological treatment options. With a number of therapeutic candidates in clinical trials already, there is a real chance to make a difference in the field by contributing to the research on oncolytic viral therapy and gene expression therapies. Their base in Oxfordshire is modern, well equipped and friendly.
Oxford Biomedica has been making their mark for over 20 years in the field of gene-based medicine. It is another case of University academics establishing a private spin-off project to pursue their own interests and drive the field forward. They work across the areas of cancer treatment, retinopathy, and Parkinson’s disease. They combine the expertise of bio-scientists and engineers to create a smooth process that maximizes efficiency and a fluid pipeline for their research to move into the ‘real world’ application.
Jazz Pharmaceuticals is a multinational player in the biopharmaceutical field which focuses on identifying and working to meet unmet patient needs.
