The series resumes for the Lent term on 19th January with a session about the conversion of ideas into science and thence into business opportunities.

Cambridge Antibody Technology (CAT) was founded in the dying days of 1989 to develop human therapeutic antibodies. The early stages were difficult; the underlying science was only half done, and the large pharmaceutical companies and most investors did not believe that antibodies were viable drugs, although now it is an industry with a turnover of more than $25 bn per annum. Sir Gregory Winter (a founder) and Dr Kevin Johnson (an early recruit) will piece together the founding, and the development of the science and business of CAT , including the early development of the blockbuster drug HumiraTM directed against rheumatoid arthritis.

The series will continue on 26th Jan with guest speakers, including Neil Davidson of Redgate Software, talking about how to build a dream team. In addition, just a reminder that we’re running a structured networking event on 2nd February at Judge Business School to enable attendees to meet with as many experts and entrepreneurs as possible and focus on how to improve your chances of business success.
