About Us

Horizon strives to transform the lives of patients with genetic disease, improving healthcare through the expert application of gene editing and gene modulation on cells

To achieve this goal, Horizon is delivering a repeatable life science business set to have an increasingly significant impact on 21st century healthcare, enabling our customers to revolutionise how life science research is undertaken, how disease is diagnosed, and how effective treatments are developed.

To achieve this goal, we are delivering a repeatable life science tools business focused on meeting the needs of our customers today, and anticipating their needs for tomorrow, in areas as diverse as personalised medicine, cell and gene therapy (a market estimated to be worth up to £14 billion by 20251), and immuno-oncology (a market currently estimated to be worth £50 billion per year by 20202).

The Power of the Cell

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.
