Avacta Establishes New Therapeutics Headquarters

Avacta is relocating its therapeutics headquarters to Scale Space in Imperial College’s White City Campus, London, United Kingdom.

Avacta Group, a clinical-stage oncology drug company, announced that it would be relocating its Therapeutics division on May 11, 2022.The division will now be headquartered at Scale Space in Imperial College’s White City Campus, London, United Kingdom. This move follows Avacta’s recent transition of lead candidate AVA600, a tumor-activated form of doxorubicin, into clinical trials in August 2021.

Scale Space is part of the broader White City Innovation District, which is currently home to over 140 companies across a broad range of industries, including pharmaceutical and biotech. According to a company press release, Avacta’s new HQ will be part of a life science cluster at the west London site.

“This move is the result of a clear vision to bring together the research and development teams into one hub to facilitate the translation of our in-house research from bench to bedside,” said Fiona McLaughlin, chief scientific officer of Avacta, in the press release. “We are now at the heart of the innovative White City community in London, readily accessible to our collaborators around the world and poised to take Avacta to the next level in its evolution as a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company.”
