Aptus Clinical is a specialist UK- based oncology clinical research organisation which helps life science companies to optimise their clinical development strategies and effectively transform promising molecules into valued medicines.
What makes Aptus Clinical different is our flexibility – our clients benefit from our network of highly experienced and skilled experts from all technical disciplines, but only pay for what they need, when they need it. Our scientists have global expertise in all aspects of drug development so no challenge is too great, and being highly professional, they integrate seamlessly into a client organisation. This gives our clients all the benefits of an in-house clinical department, but at a significantly lower cost. In addition, our well-established relationships with some of the world’s leading experimental cancer centres, access to large patient populations and flexible arrangements to support optimal project delivery are just a few of the benefits to be gained from working with Aptus Clinical.
Whether you need one-off consultancy support, clinical SOP implementation, expert medical or scientific input on a short or long term basis, or a full trial programme, we’d love to hear from you.

Censo Biotechnologies Ltd is a stem cell technology company providing human cells and contract research services for drug discovery, toxicity testing and cell banking.
The company has the capabilities to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from large cohorts of individuals and use the potential of these cells to create virtually any cell in the human body.
By developing cell-based models of disease using cells from a diverse range of tissue donors, the company supports the development of new targeted treatments for disease. Its major focus is the generation of novel data on drug efficacy and drug response variation for a given population.
The company was founded in 2016, through the merger of Roslin Cellab and Roslin Cell Sciences, and has facilities in both Edinburgh and Cambridge, UK.
Horizon Discovery Group
OxStem is a drug discovery company, spun-out from the University of Oxford, with the unique vision of developing in-situ cell programming therapies to treat what are typically (but certainly not exclusively) age-related conditions, such as Dementia, Heart Failure, Macular Degeneration (the leading cause of blindness in the developed world), Diabetes and Oncology.
The idea is straightforward - to use the Stem Cell and Medicinal Chemistry expertise within Chemistry and its associated partners at Oxford to identify new classes of drugs that can re-program or stimulate existing endogenous cells - awakening previously defunct or dormant cellular processes.
Sareum is a drug discovery and development company, headquartered in Cambridge UK, that produces targeted small molecule therapeutics, focusing on cancer and autoimmune disease. Sareum aims to successfully deliver drug candidates for licensing to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies at the pre-clinical or early clinical trials stage.
Sareum operates an outsourced research model, working with collaborators (SRI International, the CRT Pioneer Fund and Hebei Medical University Biomedical Engineering Center) and a world-wide network of research providers. Its research pipeline includes two programmes undergoing pre-clinical IND-enabling studies.
Selcia Ltd is a leading provider of contract research services in drug discovery and 14C radiolabelling.
