The ceremony was attended by more than 500 quoted and private UK and European life sciences companies and their corporate advisers, analysts, fund managers, commentators and peers.
“We are excited to be recognised as the 'Emerging Star' by the Mediscience Awards amongst a cohort of outstanding companies that all work hard to push the boundaries and make a difference for patients.
This is a testament to the growing awareness of how synbio companies like bit.bio can positively impact the biotech and pharma industries with new technologies and work together on new ways to discover, develop and build new medicines.
And it would not happen without the hard work of our continually growing team that is dedicated to unlocking the power of human cells to transform research, drug discovery and cell therapies."
