Oxford Genetics is a specialist synthetic biology company based in Oxford, United Kingdom, and our goal is to accelerate the discovery, development and production of proteins, antibodies, viruses and bio-therapeutics (biologics, gene/cell therapies) through the application of synthetic biology. We are focused on providing DNA, protein, virus and cell line solutions for mammalian expression and bio-production. From DNA design/synthesis, through antibody development, and using vectors to produce proteins/antibodies/viruses on the backend, Oxford Genetics delivers. Our team pride themselves on understanding the biological purpose of our customer’s projects, and work hand-in-hand to design, construct and validate the systems needed, providing a complete synthetic biology solution from design to delivery.
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.
