£3.5m Seed Round for Cytoseek
Another EBS alumni to thrive following 12 months intensive training with EBS has been Dr Ben Carter. Ben is a founder and COO of Cytoseek Ltd., a spinout from University of Bristol, developing technology that will allow a whole new range of cancers to be effectively targeted with immunotherapy
The company has raised £3.5 million ($4.87 million) from investors to continue to test its technology and to develop commercial partnerships. While the technology is still three to four years from being ready for human clinical trials, it has shown promise in initial lab tests.
The funding round represents the debut investment for a new Bristol-based venture capital firm called Science Creates Ventures (SCV) that is focused on deep tech companies undertaking cutting-edge innovations in computer science and biotechnology.
