Retrogenix relocates to Derbyshire Peaks
UK biotechnology company Retrogenix are pleased to announce their relocation to Whaley Bridge in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District.
Previously based at Sheffield University’s Bioincubator, the move reflects the progress of the company since its formation in 2008 by directors Dr Jim Freeth and Jo Soden.
“As a startup biotech, the Bioincubator was a perfect location for us and played a huge part in our early success” says Jim Freeth.
“As our business continues to grow (Retrogenix counts 7 of the global top Pharma companies as its partners), we needed somewhere to expand into” explains Jo Soden. “Our new premises provides us with the space we need, with scope to expand further as we continue to increase our team of scientists. We are lucky to have found the ideal location in the heart of the Peak District surrounded by beautiful countryside.”
Retrogenix has already begun recruiting new scientific staff to the company.
