Incubator firm grows with MSP
Biomedical researcher, Euprotec, has relocated into offices and laboratory space in Manchester Science Park's Oxford Road site from current premises at University of Manchester Innovation Centre.
Euprotec was established in 2008 and works with biotech and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate discovery and development of medicines to treat infections and respiratory diseases.
Dr Lloyd Payne, chief executive of Euprotec, said: "We have always aspired to move to larger, purpose built facilities and MSP provided an excellent opportunity for us to do so. For a fast growing business such as ours, it is an important natural progression to 'graduate' from the incubator at UMIC and move to our own dedicated space with potential for further expansion.
"Euprotec is in an exciting phase of growth and our success means we are in a position where, having benefitted from the support of the incubator facility, we have become less reliant on its services. We believe that our clients will benefit greatly from our relocation due to the additional important services we now offer as well as continued access to the university and biomedical networks that MSP provides."
Lynne Barlow, commercial director at MSP, said: "Euprotec was borne out of experience and internationally recognised expertise in its field and we are especially pleased to have them as a tenant. We are confident that the business support services and contacts MSP provides will be of value to the company as it continues to grow."
