OxStem is a drug discovery company, spun-out from the University of Oxford in 2016, with the unique vision of developing small molecule therapeutics that augment repair mechanisms that already exist within the body. OxStem is developing drug candidates that can awaken endogenous cells to repair tissues affected by disease or injury to treat diseases such as Dementia, Heart Failure, Macular Degeneration (the leading cause of blindness in the developed world) and Oncology.

Regulatory Affairs, Pharmacovigilance - If you need support with your regulatory affairs, regulatory strategy or pharmacovigilance needs, we can arrange this through our trusted partner organisation. Wide Network - Projects at initial scientific concepts? Products at commercialisation and reimbursement stage? Our partners will help. Due Diligence and Auditing - Looking for support for due diligence, or auditing of partners? We can arrange all this.
Pneumagen is using its platform technology, GlycoTarge™, to develop glycan targeted carbohydrate binding modules (CBMs) as a new universal therapeutic modality for the treatment of respiratory tract infections (RTIs) and cancer.
Pneumagen’s lead product, Neumifil™, is a first-in-class mCBM40 being developed for the universal treatment of Influenza Virus (IFV) and Respiratory Synctial Virus (RSV) infections. When administered intranasally in preclinical models, Neumifil™ has demonstrated prevention, treatment and post-exposure prophylaxis of IFV infection with no observed toxicity. Pneumagen’s mCBM, in development for cancer, isknown as Neumonco™. In vitro data have demonstrated that mCBMs target and enter cancer cells, reducing cell proliferation, migration, metabolism and differentiation.
Founded in 2016, the Company is a spin-out from the University of St Andrews in Scotland and has access to world-class scientific expertise and capabilities in glycobiology. Please visit www.pneumagen.com for more information.

Redx Pharma discovers and develops proprietary, small molecule drugs to address areas of high unmet medical need in cancer and fibrosis. In cancer, we pursue targeted therapies where a biomarker can potentially be used for selecting those patients that are most likely to benefit from therapy, and/or drugs that are designed to disrupt cancer resistance pathways. In fibrosis, we are focused on developing treatments that will stop and reverse the formation of fibrotic tissue. In both therapeutic areas we aim to develop drugs whose profile suggests they will be best in class, if not first in class.
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.
Sekisui Diagnostics, a global provider of innovative medical diagnostics to physicians and laboratories, has been committed to improving the lives of patients for over 30 years. We continue to invest in new diagnostic products in the areas of diabetes, infectious disease, coagulation, diagnostic enzymes and automated systems. We are a leading provider of rapid tests in the U.S., and high throughput coagulation systems in Japan. We develop, manufacture, and supply over 1.7 billion tests each year to the global healthcare market through direct sales, our commercial distribution networks and our partners.
Selcia Ltd is a leading provider of contract research services in drug discovery and 14C radiolabelling. In January 2018 Selcia became part of Eurofins Pharma Discovery Services affording Selcia the capacity to deliver extensive and seamless solutions and services that span the whole spectrum of drug discovery.
Selcia Drug Discovery focusses on integrated small molecule drug discovery, with a strong track record of IP generation and preclinical candidate delivery for customers – 25 patents and 11 preclinical candidates generated. USPs are the medicinal chemistry of macrocycles, and a peptidyl prolyl isomerase (PPIase) screening platform.
Selcia radiolabelling specialises in 14C GMP radiolabelling, producing 14C radiolabelled compounds for a global customer base encompassing both the life sciences and chemical industries. Applications of the radiolabelled products prepared by Selcia include: preclinical and clinical drug metabolism studies; mass balance, IV microdosing, dermal penetration, regulatory and environmental fate studies.
Selcia also offers GLP NMR and mass spectrometry services to support regulatory submissions, and specialised purification capabilities from analytical (µg) to multi-100g scale.

Silence Therapeutics develops a new generation of medicines by harnessing the body’s natural mechanism of RNA interference, or RNAi, within its cells.
Our proprietary technology can selectively inhibit any gene in the genome, specifically silencing the production of disease-causing proteins. Using our enabling delivery systems, we have achieved an additional level of specificity by delivering our therapeutic RNA molecules exclusively to target cells. Silence’s proprietary RNA chemistries and delivery systems are designed to improve the stability of our molecules and enhance effective delivery to target cells, providing a powerful modular technology well suited to tackle life-threatening diseases.
