Welcome Welcome to the One Nucleus Member Directory for 2017. I am delighted that One Nucleus continues to be the largest life science and healthcare membership organisation in Europe, with over 470 members. In 2016 we were awarded the honour of ‘Best Global Life Sciences and Healthcare Membership Organisation’ by Global Health & Pharma magazine, which the team and I were thrilled with and believe is testimony to the strength of each and every one of our members. This directory profiles all our members. Company details have been supplied to us by the organisations featured. I hope these will help you to identify old friends and also new potential partners, customers and suppliers from the One Nucleus family. We operate three levels of membership – Partner, Gold and Silver (with Partners receiving all Gold Member benefits). Please see inside for details of the benefits of membership if you haven’t yet joined us. Here at One Nucleus we are always keen to make everything we do as worthwhile and tangible as it can possibly be, and to scrutinise our services to ensure they fit with our members’ needs and business objectives. As an example, do read more on page 20 about our fast expanding ON Helix Conference and how we continue to evolve our Genesis Conference, in collaboration with SCRIP, on page 19.

One Nucleus Services 1. Events Network Meetings (Cambridge) and BioWednesdays (London) Our networking meetings bring together our broad range of members for peer‑to‑peer debate around current trends, challenges and opportunities within the sector in an informal setting. Meetings are usually held in the evening, with presentations or panel debates sandwiched between ample time for networking. Attendance ranges between 50 and 150 delegates. Gold and Silver Member company employees are entitled to free entry. Non‑members are welcome, although are subject to a small charge. Genesis (London) Genesis has been running as our international life science conference since 2001. In partnership with SCRIP Intelligence and other partners, recent years have seen increasing depth and breadth of content and debate at Genesis, retaining a core biopharma theme and with a greater presence of digital health and medtech on the programme, reflecting the changing life science and healthcare landscape. Even more interactive leadership sessions, 1‑2‑1 partnering, workshops and bespoke hubs to source innovation, finance, R&D services and international opportunities respectively. A mark of the progress of Genesis is that it has now become a significant hub event, around which other organisations are increasingly planning

8 | One Nucleus Directory 2017

their own satellite events on the surrounding dates – now known as the Genesis Fringe. These elements, and the location of the conference at the heart of the world leading international business hub that is London, make Genesis a unique nucleus for the life science sector where delegates leave having gained maximal return on investment from their participation. ON Helix (Cambridge) ON Helix is our annual translational research conference for the life science industry. Launched in 2013, this one day conference aims to inform delegates of how to turn early stage inventions and ideas into innovative health treatments. It presents the UK landscape of the business environment, funding, scientific and clinical research excellence and is a unique knowledge‑sharing environment between academia and business. ON Helix combines keynote presentations from high profile global leaders, practical information, exceptional world‑class case studies and plenty of time for networking. Life Science Leadership Series Our Life Science Leadership Series are our bespoke events showcasing innovation that addresses specific areas of challenges for our members and the wider sector – whether by therapy area, technology discipline or business challenge.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) We run a range of Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings for our Gold Members. Our SIGs include Human Resources, Operations which incorporates Facilities, Security & Business Risk, Health & Safety and Purchasing. The aim of these meetings is to provide a platform for people doing similar jobs in different companies to get together informally and discuss the issues that affect their working lives. Meetings are typically held three or four times a year, starting with a presentation on a topic nominated by the SIG, followed by discussion and lunch. One Nucleus reserves the right to exclude individual Gold Members from individual SIGs where we consider there to be a conflict of interest.

2. Purchasing Scheme The One Nucleus Purchasing Scheme was set up to deliver low cost purchasing based on the combined spend of the purchasing consortium members. The scheme currently saves our purchasing consortium members over £4 million per annum. By joining together in the scheme, small businesses enjoy the same purchasing influence as larger companies and we are able to negotiate excellent prices and substantial savings in a number of product areas, including lab consumables, stationery and courier services. It is the largest and longest running scheme of its kind run by a membership organisation for the sector in the UK.

In addition to the Support Supply Agreements (SSAs) that are available to all One Nucleus members, Gold Members also have exclusive access to our Preferred Supplier Agreements (PSAs) – tendered agreements with various suppliers. Our suppliers are selected based on their ability to offer one or more of these criteria:  Substantial discounts (up to 50% off catalogue prices)  No delivery or handling charges  Guide payment terms of 30 days with the option of monthly consolidated invoicing  Delivery next day if in stock  Volume rebates for companies exceeding annual turnover targets Savings vary from company to company, but on average our members save over 35% on their annual spend.

3. Training Programme One Nucleus recognises that a company’s employees are its most valuable asset. Many rapidly growing companies overlook the need for ongoing training of their staff. One Nucleus has developed a portfolio of training courses designed to help life science and healthcare companies build an experienced and cohesive workforce. Employees should be able to contribute far beyond their technical capacity to enhance company growth and success as well as developing their personal skills. We have developed a range of tailored training courses based on the needs of our member companies. We are constantly developing courses on new subjects as our members’ needs change. With this in mind, we have extended our training reach in the UK and now offer our training courses in London as well as Cambridge. All of our courses can be adapted and tailored to meet your needs, and can be delivered cost‑effectively in‑house, both nationally and internationally. One Nucleus training courses are available to members and non‑members. Non‑members pay a commercial list price rate, while Silver Members receive a discount from the list price and Gold Members receive increased discounts off the list price plus priority booking. | 9

International Activities As an international membership organisation with global reach, we are delighted that we have continued to see companies from outside the UK join the One Nucleus family. Our international activities focus to a large extent on developing relations and tangible outcomes for our members with the US and wider Europe. That said, a wide range of our events and activities are specific to other markets and past events have included a focus on Hong Kong, Canada, Sweden, France and Australia to name but a few. In the US, we have formal relations with six of the top life science and healthcare membership organisations who support our members in accessing their networks and markets. In Europe, One Nucleus is a long‑term member of the Council of European BioRegions (CEBR) and continues to have excellent relations, not just with key cluster organisations across Europe, but with companies too.

Our Corporate Patron

Our Corporate Patron Here at One Nucleus we are delighted and honoured that MedImmune is our Corporate Patron. The company has worked very closely with us since the creation of One Nucleus in 2010. I am personally very pleased that Jon Green, Vice President, Site General Manager at MedImmune, continues to chair our board of directors. His insightful advice and thoughtful intelligence are pivotal in ensuring we retain our strong focus on delivering tangible benefits for all our members, and with a special focus on our SME members. As well as being on the same site (Granta Park), there is great interaction between the two organisations. Senior MedImmune scientists are on the Advisory Boards of many of our events, including ON Helix (our translational research conference in Cambridge). They are hands‑on and bring significant gravitas and knowledge to the programmes. We work alongside the MedImmune team to deliver their internal ‘Creating New Medicines’ course. And in other collaborative activity, I meet and present regularly to the Leadership Team at MedImmune on a range of subjects – from debates to internal teams to briefings for their IP lawyers. Jane Osbourn told me: “we deeply value our relationship with One Nucleus. As well as being the go‑to place for advice or information about what is going on in the sector, they have their finger on the pulse of what their members need. MedImmune thoroughly enjoys playing its part in this and I think it demonstrates our commitment to the wider ecosystem.” As I am sure most readers of this Directory will know, MedImmune is the worldwide biologics R&D arm of AstraZeneca. Committed to scientific innovation and medical progress, and contributing to all of MedImmune’s therapy areas, MedImmune’s team in Cambridge is the European biologics R&D base for oncology; respiratory, inflammation and autoimmunity; and cardiovascular disease. Recognised for their excellence in antibody discovery and protein engineering; disease understanding; biopharmaceutical development; clinical development; project management; legal, intellectual property; and regulatory affairs; the 600 or so MedImmune employees in Cambridge work in integrated project teams with colleagues in Gaithersburg and California. With one of the strongest, most robust pipelines in the industry, including more than 120 research projects and over 40 product candidates in clinical development, MedImmune comprises nearly half of AstraZeneca’s overall R&D portfolio. It is very clear from my interactions with MedImmune that our Corporate Patron has partnership and collaboration at the heart of its work. This is seen in its activities, not just with us (serving the sector more widely than purely MedImmune interests), but also with the University of Cambridge, Addenbrooke’s, the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Babraham Research Campus, Cancer Research UK, the Institute of Metabolic Sciences and a wide range of other collaborations and links with academics, researchers, charities, foundations and neighbouring companies. Long may it continue – I, for one, am hugely grateful for the personal and professional support we at One Nucleus receive from Jane Osbourn (Vice President Research and Development, and Cambridge Site Leader), Jon Green (our Chair) and the wider MedImmune team.

Working with our Partners: Engaging with our Corporate Sponsors and Partners in order to share insight, whether at events or via e‑communications is an important part of One Nucleus’ activities. Here are some examples of recent activities: l One Nucleus led on the delivery of a dementia research leadership day hosted at Eli Lilly’s Windlesham site. The day gathered over 100 high level delegates to debate leading approaches in the diagnosis, treatment and financing of dementia research and development. Plans are well underway to deliver further leadership and networking events in therapeutic fields such as the microbiome, immunotherapy and dementia, whilst we also explore more commercial themes such as working with mid‑sized pharma and engaging with the City. AstraZeneca provides numerous speakers and insight via our events and MSD are increasing their engagement in areas such as oncology, microbiome and investment. l Our Professional Services Partners provide specialist insights for our members. Penningtons Manches has hosted breakfast sessions on key topics including how employers can secure IP around interim staff engagement, preparing for an IPO and data protection strategies. Future topics may cover corporate finance options, IP licensing and real estate considerations for life science companies. Deloitte and Taylor Wessing add to this knowledge sharing through hosting breakfasts, leadership events and CEO Dinners. Hume Brophy bring expertise in accessing capital and communications. l Our One Nucleus Partners providing R&D facilities, such as Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst, BioMed Realty, London Bioscience Innovation Centre, Queen Mary BioEnterprises, Babraham Bioscience Technologies and Norwich Research Park engage to inform members and inward investors of their location options and to engage their own tenants in One Nucleus member benefits. l Our CRO and technical advisory Partners, such as PPD, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Global Regulatory Services (GRS), support our members through provision of expert speakers and insight in fields such as precision medicine, international clinical trial procedures, ADMETox requirements and regulatory strategies. l Finally, our Partners in the business intelligence, communications, travel and bio‑partnering space, which include SCRIP Intelligence, PharmaVentures, First Sight Media, Pharmaceutical Training International, GlobalData, Assay Depot, EBD Group, United and Flight Centre Business Travel, provide our members with access to strategic advice and significant discounts on training, travel and major conferences. For more information about the Partner Programme (and costs), please contact Tony Jones at

Life Science Leadership Series

Life Science Leadership Series Our Life Science Leadership Series (LSLS) continue to focus on showcasing innovation and addressing specific areas that challenge our members and the wider sector – whether it’s a therapeutic area, technology discipline or business challenge. In 2016 our LSLS evolved even further to answer the network’s needs and interests and they now consist of three streams: l Leadership Sessions – Half or full day events covering developments within a specific therapeutic area. For example, in 2016 we organised a session on the impact of genomics on drug development which was held at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton. The event covered new developments and programmes in genomics and biodata, highlighting their impact on the pharmaceutical industry and the processes of new therapeutics development. We have also covered other particularly relevant therapeutics areas for the industry including inflammatory respiratory diseases and dementia. Dementia is particularly relevant to the One Nucleus network in the context of the UK’s involvement in this area. l Innovation Sessions – Showcasing the latest technical solutions to challenges in R&D. Various topics around drug conjugation and pre‑clinical datasets have been covered, providing earlier stage companies within the network with a solid base to advance their research projects on the drug development pathway. l Business Intelligence Sessions – Data presentations and debates around key issues and innovation in business practice. These popular sessions have covered topics relevant to all businesses in the sector, including talent management, market access, clinical trial liability and equity financing – all discussed in small group sessions. Our LSLS are a very important aspect of engagement with our members as we create them upon members’ demand for topics and in collaboration with the right expertise in the network. Given the rich content of these events, we always publish speakers’ slides and also relevant articles from other organisations and often editorial known as ‘ON Insights’ – findings from the session are published on our website. If you would like to discuss any potential topic that represents an industry challenge for you or your organisation, or specific aspects of innovation, please contact our Business Development Manager, Aline Charpentier on 01223 896 451 or at

ON Helix

ON Helix Date: 13 July 2017 Venue: Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge ON Helix is now our established translational research conference in the UK calendar, addressing key themes with world class speakers through interactive case study sessions. The conference brings academia and industry together under one roof to bridge the gap between basic research and launching a product onto the market, a part of the drug discovery process that is not focused on at most other conferences around the UK. 2016 saw another great event with keynote addresses from Professor Sir John Savill, Chief Executive of the MRC; Dr Susan Windham‑Bannister, President and CEO of Biomedical Growth Strategies; Professor Nick Lemoine, Medical Director at NIHR; Professor David Roblin, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Scientific Translation at the Francis Crick Institute; and Dr Jane Osbourn, Site Leader and VP Research and Development, MedImmune. The One Nucleus team, along with an exemplary advisory board, have put together another exciting programme for 2017. Along with plenty of case studies from companies that have been through the process themselves, the programme will include sessions on collaborating and funding, which are key topics in the sector today, alongside ample opportunities for networking throughout the day. We are pleased to announce that Sharon Vosmek, CEO of Astia (a US investor powerhouse) will be joining us from the US to deliver one of the keynote addresses at ON Helix 2017. For the first time at ON Helix, we will be holding a joint investors’ dinner with Cambridge Enterprise the evening before ON Helix, as well as holding our Summer BioNewsRound Award Finals and Welcome Reception at the EMBL‑EBI. With plenty of time to network, opportunity to take part in 1‑2‑1 partnering meetings, 30 plus exhibitors and many other inspirational speakers, ON Helix promises to be another great event for 2017.

Save the date for 2018: ON Helix, 17 July 2018 l For more information about ON Helix, please contact Nadia at or visit

Past delegates say it best... Good translational research is vital if we are to address patient needs in an expert way long into the future. ON Helix brings together people who have been there and done it successfully. It is a great way for companies to hear best practice and to find out how to do things more quickly, less expensively and in a more timely way. Professor Sir John Savill, CEO, MRC ON Helix is THE translational event in the UK where all participants can expect to network at the highest level with each other and learn an incredible amount all in the one day. It’s terrific! Sir Mike Rawlins, Former Chair of Eastern AHSN, President of the Royal Society of Medicine, now Chair of MHRA The ON Helix conference stimulated imaginative debate about how we can translate discovery and invention in the life sciences into innovation in medicines and diagnostics, with the real prospect of impact on the health and wealth of the population. I can’t wait for the next event! Professor Nick Lemoine, Medical Director, NIHR Congratulations on organising such an actively attended and enriching meeting. Alan Hirzel, CEO, Abcam

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Special Interest Groups are typically run four times a year and are a Gold Member benefit. HR Any Gold Member of One Nucleus who deals with personnel issues is welcome to attend meetings of the HR SIG, whether you’re an experienced HR professional, just learning the ropes or only get involved because there’s no one else to do it! The group meets regularly throughout the year for a series of informal and proactive workshops and seminars on HR topics directly relevant to the biomedical sector. The sessions are run by Eleanor Freeman, a partner at Cambridge Employment Law LLP. The events offer the opportunity to learn, network and share best practice in a ‘safe’ environment. Eleanor also provides a newsletter updating you on the changes to employment law that you need to know and highlights issues relevant to the biomedical sector. Cambridge Employment Law LLP is a specialist employment law practice, advising both employers and employees. Eleanor Freeman has particular experience advising the biomedical sector. Find out more at:

Health and Safety The aim of the Health and Safety SIG is to provide a platform of communication for health and safety managers. These meetings were developed at the request of health and safety managers who wished to meet with their industry peers. Topics cover: Spill procedures, COSHH, GMOs, legislative updates and the overview of the challenges facing health and safety managers. * One Nucleus reserves the right to exclude individual members from individual SIGs where we consider there to be a conflict of interests.

Findacure is a UK charity that is building the rare disease community to drive research and develop treatments. We work to: 1.

European Activities

European Activities One Nucleus’ mission is to maximise the global growth and competitiveness of our members. One of the key strands of our strategy is our international activities and we encourage our members to take advantage of platforms and initiatives we work on in this regard. We recognise that for UK companies to be strong, they need to have access to and relations with other exceptional global companies. The sector is global and the success of it hangs on us working in partnership with relevant international organisations for mutual benefit. This is why One Nucleus has always had an interest in being involved in European activities, encouraging members to take advantage of initiatives and platforms we work with and on. This engagement is also a great opportunity for One Nucleus to develop even closer connections with other European bioregions and to improve our knowledge of the sector outside the UK. As some of you will be aware, we collaborate each year at BIO with other European clusters on joint activities for our members and theirs – in particular the One Nucleus BIO Breakfast that, since 2012, has seen us working with Stockholm‑Uppsala Life Science as well as the major US cluster organisations. We are in regular discussions with all the major European clusters regarding ongoing information exchanges, visits and collaborations for tangible member benefit and, of course, many are involved in our annual Genesis Conference. Do let us know if you would like us to introduce you to European cluster organisations/managers. We know them all! One Nucleus is also a member of, and strongly involved in the Council of European BioRegions (CEBR), which is the biggest and most active network of bioclusters in Europe. www.lifescience‑cluster‑ Harriet, our Chief Executive, is actively involved in CEBR too, supporting the organisation’s strategy and future, and as a member we attend the AGM each year, which is a fantastic opportunity to reinforce our good connections with the main European bioregions.

Strategic Relations with Top US Clusters

Strategic Relations with Top US Clusters One Nucleus members have expressed a desire for us to develop strategic partnerships with other leading clusters (specifically in the US) and to provide members with access to potential partners and investors from other global centres of excellence. With this in mind, we have signed four separate Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with top US clusters organisations: MassBIO, MassMEDIC, BIOCOM and CLSA. In October 2009 we signed our first Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with MassBIO to encourage and promote co‑operation and deal flow between members. The MOU confirmed a commitment to facilitate transatlantic investment and partnering by encouraging collaborations between each group’s member companies. One Nucleus and MassBIO now promote each other’s investment and partnering events, offering members reduced rates and speaking opportunities. Importantly, and as a direct result of the formal relationships, One Nucleus members can also benefit from being offered a ‘soft landing’ by the US cluster organisation when members are looking to set up, do business or identify potential partners or investors on the East and West Coast US. A second MOU was signed in December 2009 with the Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council (MassMEDIC) to actively encourage co‑operation and collaboration between UK and US companies in the medical device sector. Subsequently, we signed a third MOU with Joe Panetta of BIOCOM (the cluster group in San Diego and Los Angeles) at BIO 2010 and a fourth MOU was signed with Gail Maderis, President of CLSA (the cluster group in San Francisco) at Genesis in December 2010. We are delighted that these strong relationships have led to tangible outcomes for One Nucleus and US partner members so far. These include: l A great BIO Executives Dinner hosted by One Nucleus at BIO each year, tailored to the interests of members, with a further one planned at BIO 2017 l A hugely well‑received Business Breakfast at BIO each year, hosted by One Nucleus and Stockholm-Uppsala Life Science, with collaboration from CLSA and BIOCOM and a further one planned at BIO 2017 l One Nucleus being asked to host the visit to the UK of the Governor of Massachusetts – to create a platform for him to deliver his keynote address on life sciences, which we were proud and delighted to arrange l One Nucleus hosting the life sciences element of the UK visit of the Governor of New Jersey in February 2015 l We negotiate specific packages of support for our members on an ongoing basis for the major US cluster events l The President of the Mass LifeScience Center, Susan Windham‑Bannister, as a keynote speaker for one of our Leadership Series events and subsequently (in her new role) as a Keynote Speaker at ON Helix 2016 l Ongoing strong and collaborative support between One Nucleus and the four MOU partners, including continuing profiling of each other’s organisations and members in‑market l Strategic partnerships signed with BioNJ, Pennsylvania Life Sciences and Life Sciences British Columbia in 2015

One Nucleus Collaborations

One Nucleus Collaborations One of the clear messages I receive regularly from members is a request to work collaboratively with other organisations and cut down the duplication of efforts in the UK. This feedback has helped us carve out our strategy and this, combined with a request from members to create connections with international organisations who can help our members grow, is at the heart of what we stand for. A clear recognition of the above was the formal merger of ERBI and London Biotechnology Network in May 2010. We also, of course, have our four Memoranda of Understanding in place with CLSA, MassBIO, MassMEDIC and BIOCOM in the USA. The spirit of partnership is very strong in the One Nucleus team, and we continue to enhance our offer for members, with partnerships with other organisations. These include: l Our Partner Programme with AstraZeneca, Babraham Bioscience Technologies, BioMed Realty, Deloitte, EBD Group, Eli Lilly, First Sight Media, Flight Centre Business Travel, GlobalData, Global Regulatory Services (GRS), Hume Brophy, London Bioscience Innovation Centre, MSD, Norwich Research Park, Penningtons Manches, Pharmaceutical Training International, PharmaVentures, PPD, Queen Mary BioEnterprises, SCRIP Intelligence, Stevenage BioScience Catalyst, The Assay Depot, and Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute l Collaboration with the Licensing Executive Society (LES) for member benefit l Formal supporter of the ‘Case for Cambridge’ via Cambridge Ahead l Local collaboration in Cambridge with Cambridge Wireless (CW), e.g. we hosted a joint event with them in September 2012 and November 2014 on the convergence of healthcare and IT, and CW worked closely in association with us on a stream at Genesis 2016 – Digital Health l Working with Cambridge Wireless, Cambridge Network and Cambridge Cleantech, our four organisations strongly support and deliver Cambridge Awards Week each year in collaboration with Cambridge News, Real VNC and Business Weekly. Importantly, in 2014 we launched (and were a founding member of ) United Life Sciences with the BIA, Bionow and BioPartner UK. This is our informal collaboration between like-minded membership organisations in the UK. It has seen us working together on the creation of a set of BioMedical Catalyst Fund handbooks and the Life Science Manifesto 2015‑2020, which informed political parties of the needs of our members and the sector into the long‑term future. MediWales joined us in 2015. We also have deals in place with other international organisations for member benefit, for example EBD Group. Do contact us for more information on the above, or if there is an organisation you would like to see us work with, let us know. We may already have a ‘deal’ in place with them!

Yet few presenters seek out expert help to overcome their fear of public speaking. Instead they rely on luck or a close circle of colleagues for feedback.
