Hopkins published last year. Based on a rich analysis of the UK’s last 40 years of investment in biotech, they concluded that the UK has not succeeded in creating Bellweathers – as measured in terms of UK stock market valuations of therapeutic biotechs.

At the forefront of health innovation

Our core strength is supporting organisations at the interface of innovation and wealth creation – to help them communicate their innovative science and new medical devices and treatments. With any new technologies, communications is a critical tool to ensure the innovations are adopted by customers and accepted and appreciated by the wider publics and society. In a sector that burns billions in cash ahead of any new product launch, it’s also vital that investors are excited by the potential and can see the value in new innovations. It’s truly an honour to be able to work with so many entrepreneurs and game-changing companies, in areas such as stem cells, gene therapy, immune-oncology, personalised medicine, the microbiome and genetic-based diagnostics. Whilst the individual brands of many of our early-stage clients are not widely known, they are changing the health outlook for all of us, and it’s exciting to be part of it. Read more
