Biosciences hub for the North West set to rival Oxbridge

Pharmacist - North-west England can create an international life sciences hub - SantanderCB

North West England can create an international life sciences hub to rival Oxford and Cambridge, according to the boss of a company setting up its HQ at Alderley Park in Cheshire.

Redx Pharma, a drug research company, will combine its three subsidiaries on the site, which has been vacated by AstraZeneca, and become the largest employer there.

CEO Neil Murray said: 'We have a real opportunity to create a world-class bioscience hub. The infrastructure AstraZeneca has left behind represents a huge opportunity to match what Oxford and Cambridge have.'

Redx will double its 37,000 sq ft space and move its cancer drug business from Liverpool. It already has two businesses on site. One is trying to find new antibiotics to treat infections such as MRSA; the other is researching drugs to combat immune system disorders.
