LifeArc is a self-funded medical research charity. Their work advances the translation of early science along the path to healthcare treatments or diagnostics. LifeArc has been doing this for more than 25 years and their work has resulted in a diagnostic for antibiotic resistance and four licensed medicines. Their success allows LifeArc to explore new approaches to advise, research and fund translation. LifeArc model is built on collaboration, and we partner with a broad range of groups including medical research charities, research organisations and industry and academic scientists. They are motivated by patient needs and scientific opportunities.
