LifeArc

LifeArc is a leading UK medical research charity that transforms promising life science ideas into medical breakthroughs that change patients’ lives. We specialise in early-stage translation – advancing lab-based scientific discoveries to a point at which they can be developed into the next generation of diagnostics, treatments and cures. LifeArc partner and work with academics, industry, charities and patient groups to unlock the potential of early-stage science. We do this by providing three types of support: translational advice (business and industrial know-how), translational science (our own lab-based research), and translational funding (investments and philanthropic grants). Through our new strategy, making life science life changing, we plan to spend up to £1.3 billion by 2030, to help patient-focused life sciences to flourish.
