Events Roadshow: X01 & beyond – fortune favours the prepared mind

Thursday 8 June, 6-8pm, refreshments provided 

The Sackler Lecture Theatre, Cambridge Institute for Medical Research Building (CIMR), Biomedical Campus, Hills Road

Are you interested in exploring the commercial potential of your research?

On Thursday 8th June, in light of our 10th anniversary celebrations, Cambridge Enterprise will be holding the first in a series of Roadshow events showcasing some of the most prominent research that has spun out of the University.

Come and hear how Professor Jim Huntington (founder X01 Ltd) worked with Cambridge Enterprise to form spin out X01 and later ApcinteX and Z Factor.

X01 developed ichorcumab, a recombinant human antibody that prevents thrombosis without promoting bleeding. The potential is vast: preventing blood clots without causing excessive bleeding could avert millions of deaths from heart attack and stroke every year.

Reserve your place here today.

These events are open to academics and postdocs alike from all departments.
