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:

Professor Susan Greenfield and Miss Julie Peachey will visit UCB Celltech in Slough at the beginning of February to investigate possible collaborations with their neurodegeneration section and/or investment towards one of Neuro-Bios projects. The two companies originally met at Biotrinity and then again at Genesis 2017 and have had email discussions about possible partnerships for the next phase.
