George Osborne visits ApconiX!

We were delighted to welcome Tatton MP George Osborne on his visit to ApconiX earlier this month.  Mr Osborne was shown around our state of the art laboratories by co-directors and partners Dr Michael Morton and Dr Richard Knight. Since ApconiX was founded in 2015, it has grown rapidly by providing world-class nonclinical safety expertise to biotech, biopharma and academia.

George said: “I’ve been determined as the local MP to do everything I can to support jobs at Alderley Park. The BioHub at Alderley Park is a fantastic initiative and I am so pleased that it continues to attract life science businesses from across the North West. I have always been clear that Cheshire has the potential to lead the way in scientific innovation and I am so pleased that the BioHub is continuing to nurture new talent.”

After the visit Mr Osborne tweeted that its ‘Good to welcome another great life science company @ApconiXLtd to the growing @BioHubAlderley here in Tatton’.

We couldn’t agree more!
