Concept Life Sciences has signed for 12,400 sq ft of laboratory space across two different parts of the Alderley Park campus in Cheshire.
The scientific research company is moving into the park’s Mereside campus, where it has taken 10,111 sq ft of laboratory space for its chemistry team and a further 2,284 sq ft for its biologists. Having grown its research team from 2014, Concept now has 700 employees.
Michael Fort, executive chairman of Concept Life Sciences, said: “This significant investment will enable us to put in place the expertise to support Concept Life Sciences’ projected growth into 2018 and beyond.“
“Our expansion to the Mereside campus at Alderley Park is a pivotal step in the development of the group’s corporate and commercial profile to its international client base, opening new opportunities for collaboration and growth, markedly increasing the depth of our scientific offering and capitalising on Concept’s strong track record of delivery.”
The work conducted at Alderley Park will be focused around Concept’s drug discovery services, which encompass medicinal chemistry, pharmacology screening, assay development, and ADME, supporting biotech and pharma companies.
