The life sciences industry, most notably those companies developing novel therapies, is in an era of transformational change. Relatively recent technological innovations have enabled researchers to not only ‘read’ the human genome but also to be able to ‘write’ the code, giving them a better understanding of how DNA is being read and translated into proteins.
This is hugely important in a pharmaceutical context, as it helps scientists to determine how drugs work, the pathways they are impacting, any side-effects that they might cause, which patient populations might benefit and importantly, how those drugs can be produced at scale.
Our customers include many of the world’s leading academic institutes and global pharmaceutical companies. Our expertise and insights into the challenges that they face drive us to create products and services that not only differentiate our business, but also help our customers to achieve deeper understanding of biological systems, thereby fuelling the development of the next wave of precision medicine.
We have a commercial operations team that provides access to a US$2.5bn addressable market opportunity through a combination of key account, field sales, distribution and digital channels.
Cells are the functional unit of biology, and all living things are made up of them, from the simplest amoeba to humans. It is at this level where the DNA within each specialised type of cell defines its structure, metabolic processes and role within the organism.
Horizon provides ‘Inspired Cell Solutions’, and the cell is at the heart of all of our activities. We have a clear business focus based around this central vision, with our commercial and research operations designed to ensure that everything we do is aligned around the effective deployment of the cell on behalf of our customers.
