About One Nucleus

About One Nucleus Established in 1997, One Nucleus is an award winning not-for-profit Life Sciences and Healthcare membership organisation centred on the London-Cambridge-East of England corridor. Headquartered in Cambridge, at the heart of Europe’s largest Life Sciences and Healthcare cluster, we support those institutions, companies and individuals undertaking activity in or with the region. Through providing local, UK-wide and international connectivity, One Nucleus seeks to enable our members to maximise their performance. This support helps them to achieve, or better still exceed, the goals they have set for themselves. Biomedical and Healthcare R&D have always been impactful in driving social and economic progress. In an increasingly outsourced, collaborative and multi-disciplinary sector, bringing the best people together is key to translating great innovation into great products that markedly improve patient outcomes and drive economic development. Attracting and enabling the best people to engage is at the heart of the One Nucleus team ethos and what we continually strive to deliver. Vision: For One Nucleus and our members to be the top European Life Sciences and Healthcare network. Mission: We will achieve this by maximising the global competitiveness of our members. The One Nucleus Family Collectively, the membership forms a commercial, clinical and academic powerhouse. Around 70% of our members are based in the London-Cambridge-East of England corridor, an area that is home to at least 60% of the UK’s life sciences industry base. The corridor includes four of the UK’s six Academic Health Science Centres and three of the world’s top six universities. 4 | One Nucleus Directory 2018

Our Corporate Patron

Our Corporate Patron We are delighted to have MedImmune as the One Nucleus Corporate Patron; the company has worked closely with and supported us since our creation in 2010. As part of this patronage, we have formed a strong and productive relationship, which continues to serve both parties well. And we share the same ambitions for the success of the Cambridge life sciences community, and for the advantages that result from being part of a thriving cluster. As neighbours on Granta Park, interactions are straightforward and frequent, and it is rewarding for One Nucleus to see that this engagement operates at all levels of the organisation. At one end of the scale, Jon Green, MedImmune’s Vice-President and Site General Manager for Cambridge, continues to serve as Chair of our Board. Jon’s ‘hands on’ and dedicated engagement continues to provide invaluable assistance in helping us deliver on our mission to provide practical and tangible benefits to all our members. A number of senior MedImmune staff participate in One Nucleus’ formal and informal advisory groups which support such activities as our annual ON Helix conference, our Leadership Seminars and our training courses. One practical demonstration of this is our involvement in helping to deliver MedImmune’s ‘Creating New Medicines’ course in-house as part of its induction programme for new staff. Engagement also comes in the form of collaborating around input to policy makers, both locally and nationally: One Nucleus bringing insight from its membership to complement MedImmune’s own insights as the basis for engagement with those shaping the environment we collectively seek to create for life science and healthcare businesses in our region. And at the other end of the scale, we are pleased to welcome employees from all parts of MedImmune’s organisation at our networking events and topic-focused workshops. The majority of readers of this publication will be familiar with MedImmune, of course, as the global biologics R&D arm of AstraZeneca. MedImmune is pioneering innovative research and exploring novel pathways across key therapeutic areas, including oncology; respiratory; and cardiovascular and metabolic disease; and, in addition, is opportunistic in infectious disease and vaccines. MedImmune is headquartered in Gaithersburg (Maryland, USA) and has over 500 staff in Cambridge who work in fully integrated teams with their colleagues in Gaithersburg and California to deliver one of the strongest pipelines in the industry, with more than 120 biologics in research and development and over 40 candidates in clinical stage development. MedImmune is renowned locally for its excellence in antibody discovery and protein engineering; clinical development; project management; legal; intellectual property management and regulatory affairs. All of which provide a breadth of thought leadership and operational expertise that One Nucleus is able to leverage when identifying the needs of our wider membership. MedImmune is also renowned for its commitment to skills and STEM educational development across the region and this shared passion and community approach is perfectly aligned with that of One Nucleus. MedImmune has first class science and collaboration at its core and this is exemplified by how it interacts with One Nucleus to enable us both to support the local ecosystem and members. One Nucleus benefits hugely from the support we receive from the MedImmune team for which we are extremely grateful.

ON Helix

ON Helix ON Helix is our annual translational research conference in Cambridge. It addresses key themes with world class speakers and interactive case study sessions. Translating the outcomes of research into innovative new medical interventions, whether diagnostic, therapeutic or technological, is at the forefront of most researchers’ minds. It has never been more crucial for R&D companies, and for the benefit of patients, to shorten the time to market for new drug and healthcare technologies. The event informs delegates on how to turn early stage inventions and ideas into innovative medical solutions. Including presentation of the business environment, funding, scientific and clinical research excellence, ON Helix is a unique knowledge‑sharing environment between academia and business. In 2017, we had keynote addresses from Sharon Vosmek, CEO of Astia, David Pardoe of LifeArc, Peter Jackson of the Antimicrobial Resistance Centre and Sarah-Jane Dunn of Microsoft. ON Helix has evolved! This year will see the start of a new two day format. The growing conference will allow a greater opportunity to cover more of the journey from discovery to first in man. In 2018, we will be running three parallel tracks to include Science & Tech, Early Clinical Development and Funding & Deals. Both days will start with a keynote speaker session. Rosemarie Truman from the Center for Advancing Innovation is already confirmed for Day 1 and Malcolm Lowe-Lauri from Cambridge University Health Partners for Day 2. The One Nucleus Team, along with an exemplary advisory board, are putting together another exciting programme for 2018. Keep up to date with developments at

BioWednesdays and Life Sciences Leadership Series

BioWednesdays BioWednesdays (London and Cambridge) Our monthly networking meetings, BioWednesdays, bring together a broad range of our members and non-members for peer-to-peer debate around current trends, challenges and opportunities within the sector. Meetings are in an informal setting and are usually held in the evening, with presentations or panel debates sandwiched between ample networking time. Attendance ranges between 50 and 150 delegates, depending on venue. Gold and Silver Member company employees are entitled to free entry with no delegate limit. Non-members are welcome, although are subject to a small charge.

Life Science Leadership Series Life Science Leadership Series Our Life Science Leadership Series (LSLS) continues 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 LSLSs 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 2017 we organised sessions on topics such as Immuno-therapy at the Babraham Research Campus, Infectious Diseases at Chesterford Research Park and the Microbiome at Norwich Research Park. l Innovation Sessions – Showcasing the latest technical solutions to challenges in R&D. Various topics such drug conjugation, pre-clinical data sets and the development of Companion Diagnostics have been covered in 2017. This provides 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 commercial property contracts, talent management, confidentiality clauses and the CRISPR Clash in IP – all discussed in small group sessions to share best practice and learning. Our LSLSs are a very important aspect of engagement with our members as we create them in response to 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. We also publish relevant articles from other organisations and often an editorial known as ‘ON Insights’ which presents findings from the session. Our LSLSs are also an opportunity to engage with our larger R&D partners to give them a forum to present their interest and how they can collaborate with the local community. Examples from 2017 include the Genentech Symposium and Boehringer Ingelheim evening reception. 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 Head of Business Development, Aline on 01223 896 451 or at

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 Special Interest Group, whether you’re an experienced HR professional or a non-HR specialist performing that role as a part of a broader remit within your organisation. 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 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: 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. | 21

Collaborations & Relationships

Collaborations & Relationships Working in collaboration to support our members Our connectivity is an attribute our members tell us they value highly when it comes to us supporting their path to success. Collaboration, both within the UK and internationally, is therefore something we take seriously in order to afford our members the maximal reach and insight with minimal duplication of effort. Our domestic and international collaborative activities can be classified into the following broad categories: l Cluster-to-cluster l Widening expertise l Commercial

Cluster-to-Cluster Raising awareness of opportunities, trends and connections outside of our Greater Cambridge-London home region is the goal of these interactions. Within the UK, collaboration is with other membership groups, regional economic development teams, Government departments supporting growth or national trade organisations. The outcomes can vary and include: catalysing new partnerships, informing member strategic decision making in terms of growth and location or accessing complementary sources of funding. Collaboration with the national trade associations additionally allows the option to contribute to their policy research and lobbying. This latter, collective approach means Government receives clear, broadly supported messaging, leaving the lobbying to those groups with such focus and expertise whilst the rest of us can advocate in support of the sector. The international collaborations again enable us to alert our members to potential opportunities and insight when they are considering their overseas growth options. The connectivity we can deliver, through introducing our members to counterparts in other European, North America and Asian territories is truly global. Moreover, those introductions do not stop at who we know, but importantly connects the members of these collaborating groups to who they know. Through these collaborations, we frequently host inward trade mission visits, giving our members local access to the potential international deal flow. Each year at the BIO International Conference we collaborate with our MOU partners BIOCOM, MassBio and MassMedic as well as other European clusters on joint activities for our members and theirs. In particular, we hold a One Nucleus BIO Breakfast each year ahead of the main BIO Convention starting in order to bring these geographically spread connections into one forum.

Widening Expertise We are in an era when a multiplex of technology fields and business strategies are converging in the Life Sciences and Healthcare sector aimed at improving patient outcomes and efficiency of the sector. To support this evolution, we increasingly seek to bring a broader mix of expertise and insight to our members from these complementary fields. This includes collaboration with learned scientific societies, professional bodies and other membership groups through joint events, cross promotion of activities to our respective members or sharing of publications from external sources.

Commercial We maintain a number of commercial relationships and collaborations to bring benefits to our members, usually in the form of discounts on events or business intelligence. Here are some examples of our most recent and ongoing partnerships: l Discounted rates to major events such as BioEurope and BIO through our collaboration with EBD and Biopartner. l Specially reduced rates on flights, accommodation and services through Flight Centre Business Travel and United Airlines. l Discounted access to external training courses that complement our own One Nucleus training portfolio. Of course, our most frequent collaborators are our members, working with them to share knowledge, develop the network and share a leadership vision for the benefit of other members and the sector as a whole.
