Whilst in New York, where she was addressing the 2018 Annual Meeting for the American Psychiatric Association in early May, Baroness Greenfield was able to meet up for a lunch with three key investors of Neuro-Bio, Peter Yates, Jim Demetriades and Dave Fuente, none of whom are actually based in the city, but were by sheer happenstance all passing through from Florida, Los Angeles, and Melbourne. The ensuing get-together saw a highly stimulating and successful progression of ideas and plans for the company in developing a biomarker and therapeutic candidate.
Included in the picture with Baroness Greenfield is Kairos Ventures Founder and Managing Partner Jim Demetriades, David Fuente former Chairman and CEO of Office Depot and Director-Investor of Neuro-Bio, and Peter Yates AM Deputy Chairman of the Myer Investments Pty Ltd.

Baroness Susan Greenfield paid a visit to Didcot Girls’ School on Wednesday 18th April and gave a talk to Greenfield House members and Didcot Sixth Form. Not only was she able to visit the house in her namesake, but she was able speak about her journey; both professionally and personally. Her key message to the students was that finding their personal identity filled with their own interests and drive is the most important thing in life and she was able to inspire students by describing science as much more than facts; that it is elegant, philosophical in its discovery and can expose dimensions of our human nature. Baroness Greenfield looks forward to maintaining a strong relationship with Didcot Girls’ School and Didcot Sixth Form and was impressed with questions that were asked of her. Here she is pictured with Dr Gohar Khan and Executive Headteacher of Ridgeway Education Trust Mrs Rachael Warwick.

This article shows that people are starting to question the amyloid hypothesis which only proves to strengthen the novel approach that Neuro-Bio is taking to tackle Alzheimer's Disease.

Fiona Cree has just joined Neuro-Bio as a consultant: she has extensive experience as a project director within a pharmaceutical environment having worked for Pharma companies including SmithKline Beecham and GlaxoSmithKline. Her extensive knowledge of global drug development processes and regulations across all Phases as well as her innovative approach to drug development, makes her an invaluable addition to the Neuro-Bio team. Her extensive experience of utilising available resources along with her vision of long-term planning and the delivery of short and long-term goals are expected to provide a valuable steer for Neuro-Bio into its next stage of development. We also envisage her extensive knowledge in interacting with legal, investment banking and other external institutions such as the European Commission during divestment/monopoly discussions, will help us through the due diligence process as we start to negotiate Series B funding.

As Neuro-Bio continues to grow and we widen the scope and ambitions of our science, more spacious premises have proved an essential to accommodate the increase in researchers and management. Thanks to a very timely injection of funds from some of our Australian angel investors, we have been able to completely reconstruct and radically renovate recently vacated offices, into a mix of office and lab areas. This new space is bespoke and offer state of the art facilities where the whole team can readily interact in an exciting environment.
The company that designed and constructed the new premises is Sanber Ltd, one of the leading laboratory refurbishment and laboratory services installation companies in the UK. Based in Bolton but operating nationwide we provide the complete range of services required for any laboratory refurbishment or development project. They have given us specialist advice for the laboratory project and assistance from concept stage through to commissioning. For more information: http://www.sanberlabservices.co.uk/
