The College is delighted to welcome the newest member of its collaborative project with local life-science businesses.

The Lucy Cavendish Life Sciences Community is growing! We’re delighted that Adrestia Therapeutics have chosen to join us. Based at the Babraham Research Campus, Adrestia are leaders in synthetic rescue, an approach that decodes the complexity of genetic networks to reveal new ways to treat diseases. Decades of research from the laboratory of synthetic lethality pioneer Professor Steve Jackson inform their platform which is already delivering world-first, validated targets and a pipeline that offers new hope for people suffering with devastating genetic diseases.

On joining the Community, Robert Johnson, Adrestia’s CEO said

The Life Sciences Community Fund and Programme is an excellent initiative to ensure students who have been traditionally under-represented not only progress to higher education but are able to take up opportunities and thrive in the university environment. As an employer, Adrestia values diversity and hires the best talent regardless of background, race or religion. As such, we are delighted to provide our support to this important work.

Lucy Cavendish thanks Adrestia, and all members of the Life Sciences Community for their support of our students through the provision of support funds and working with us to provide activities that build confidence, skills and networks that will help our increasingly diverse student body progress into fulfilling and meaningful careers.
