The North West's economy suffered a blow in 2013 when pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca moved its research base out of Cheshire, but the region's biotech interests have a new vanguard in Dr Neil Murray and Redx Pharma. With the drug discovery specialist continuing its charge from start-up to sustainable public company, Move Commercial caught up with Murray to find out how he built one of the UK's fastest growing life science operations.
Since hanging up his lab coat and safety goggles in 1993, Dr Neil Murray's greatest discovery is a formula for commercial success in the biotech sector.
...
Murray describes Redx's initial investment drive as the "toughest" funding campaign he has ever spearheaded and attributes its success to striking up business deals with the right people.
"I would argue that it was mainly down to the corporate finance group we used then and continue to use now; Acceleris in Manchester," he says, recalling that early-stage investment coup.
...
Rather than build a business around science, Murray took what he describes as a "disruptive" approach, putting commercial sustainability first when shaping pipeline programmes to pharmaceutical partners in an attempt to meet the demands of a transitioning industry.
"We weren't going out selling science, we were going out selling a commercial proposition," he explains.
...
Although AstraZeneca's move to Cambridge was a blow to the North West, Murray is quick to point out that the region has retained a strong biotech offering.
"The North West has a phenomenally strong life sciences capability and yes, it's sad that AstraZeneca decided to move to Cambridge from a regional perspective, but from a UK perspective it's great because the important thing is that it stayed in the country," he says.
...
The solution, Murray believes, lies in education and Redx is a part of it through its role in providing placements to students at Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, the first school in Britain specialising in science and healthcare for 14 to 19-year-olds.
"We're a sponsor of the UTC and we take kids on placements and make sure we bring them in for four weeks at a time," Murray says. "There's no point in having them there for a few days or a week because they don't get much out of that and we don't either.
"Longer placements give them the opportunity to contribute rather than just come in and have a tour and look around. They come away with a better understanding of what it's like to work in a science environment because they're actually immersed in it for a month."
Looking ahead, Murray is squarely focused on what he calls the second phase of Redx's development: sustainability. It's something he believes is attainable if the government provides appropriate funding to the UK biotech industry.
"After moving up from the start-up phase we're now subtly reshaping the organisation to support more development activity and less research activity," he adds.
