Update from University of Sheffield commercialisation team

We have established a new cell therapy regulatory consultancy business.  ‘RCTC’ was founded by Dr Zoe Hewitt, an expert in stem cell technologies.  The company is available to support businesses who are in pre-clinical work for regenerative cell therapies.

Northern Gritstone has made its first three investments, of which the first 2 landed in Sheffield.  One of these companies was a University spinout, the other was based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park. NGs total cash deployed was around £8M, but this leveraged over £40M investment from other parties.

Working alongside Sheffield Tech Parks and Sheffield Hallam University, we have submitted a concept note for a new city centre based Urban Innovation Campus (incubator building).
