LifeArc is an independent medical research charity that helps patients get the best treatments that science can offer through the development of medicines, diagnostics and treatments. Working together (at no cost), your discoveries are more likely to end up reaching and impacting patients.

We bring a 25-year track record and a highly experienced team of experts who can partner with you to ensure your investment creates as much patient impact as possible as well as the financial returns that can fund even more future treatments.

A unique solution

Our approach is flexible and based on meeting your organisations’ needs, not just offering a menu of services. We can offer you a comprehensive range of technology transfer and scientific support to help progress your research. We work with you to find and develop initiatives that will deliver real impact from your work.

Existing assets

You may already be sitting on a research portfolio that has huge potential. Other organisations may also have existing science you could use utilise.

We can discuss how we can work together to identify potential in existing science and look at funding opportunities to kick start it.

Targeting your research funding

Investing in early stage research is a very risky business. We help you to evaluate and identify where best to allocate your research investment to ensure you are funding science with the best potential.

Turning your research into treatments

Your research may be ready for commercialisation. We can make sure it is partnered in such a way as to benefit your patients and your future research. With our extensive network of biotech and pharma partners we can help connect you with industry to move your research towards clinical trials and the patient, whilst protecting your investment.

We can help ensure your intellectual property is protected and can negotiate payment deals.

As a project progresses through clinical trials to the market, milestones and royalties can be generated reflecting the value of the original science.

What our charity partners say about us

“Your pedigree, skills and success are all well recognised. Your unique offer of helping charities achieve impact, for charitable benefit rather than commercial gain, is almost too good to be true.”
