December issue of BioQuarter Bulletin


As we countdown to the end of 2020, in the December issue of BioQuarter Bulletin we recap on some of the highlights and activities over what has been a tumultuous year at Edinburgh BioQuarter.

BioQuarter’s leading research and scientific talent coalesced to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. The STOPCOVID project brought together an army of 150 scientists from the Centre for Inflammation Research.

Innovation never stops – the University of Edinburgh launched several highly regarded spinouts drawing on academic research taking place at BioQuarter and resident companies at BioQuarter’s NINE and BioCubes announced exciting developments.

In the wider community, we helped to inspire the next generation of scientists by running a new initiative to provide STEM Club activity boxes.

We also include a Q & A with Galecto Biotech’s Director of Research at NINE – the global clinical-stage biotechnology company develop therapeutics and has recently traded on the Nasdaq Global Market with a public offering.

Take a listen to BioTalk, our new podcast series going behind the scenes at BioQuarter with more episodes to come in 2021.

And looking to the future, read about the launch of our £1 billion (GDV) joint venture opportunity and long-term vision to transform BioQuarter into Edinburgh’s Health Innovation District, followed up with a hugely successful virtual Bidders Day event attended by over 150 companies from around the world.
