About UK Innovation & Science Seed Fund
UK Innovation & Science Seed Fund is a national seed investment fund that helps the UK to build innovative businesses, leverage private investment and grow jobs.
UKISSF achieves this by nurturing new businesses arising from the great science undertaken in the UK; providing the patient, long-term committed capital and strategic advice these companies need.
UKISSF works closely with its partners – led STFC, BBSRC and NERC, which are all part of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and Dstl — and is aligned with the Catapults and Innovate UK to create the best environment for innovation to flourish and in turn, boost the UK’s competitiveness and productivity by commercialising key technological advances in industrial biotech, ag tech, healthcare, medicine, clean energy, materials, artificial intelligence, software and space.

LifeArc is a self-funded medical research charity. Our work advances the translation of early science along the path to healthcare treatments or diagnostics. We have been doing this for more than 25 years and our work has resulted in a diagnostic for antibiotic resistance and four licensed medicines.
Our success allows us to explore new approaches to advise, research and fund translation. Our model is built on collaboration, and we partner with a broad range of groups including medical research charities, research organisations, industry and academic scientists.
We are motivated by patient need and scientific opportunity. To find out more, visit: www.lifearc.org
