Date added: 13/09/2017

Drug discovery business Concept Life Sciences is creating jobs in Cheshire with a new operating base at Alderley Park.

The company signed up for laboratory space across two sites on the park’s Mereside campus – 10,111 sq ft for its chemistry team and 2,284 sq ft for its biologists.

Concept will now create 75 science jobs at Alderley Park, including 55 roles for medicinal chemists and biologists.

Work carried out at the facilities will focus on Concept’s drug discovery services, which include medicinal chemistry, pharmacology screening and assay development.

Concept is headquartered in Manchester and employs more than 700 people. Founded in 2014, the company’s core research and analytical insights are used in sectors such as food, pharma, biotech, environmental and agrochemical.

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.”
