San Raffaele - Seven Hills Venture Partners Ltd., a UK life science venture and advisory group, recently signed an agreement with San Raffaele Biomedical Science Park. Under the terms of the agreement Seven Hills will seek UK licensing partners for technologies, products and contract services - as diverse as peptides, stem cells and vaccines in therapeutic areas ranging from migraine to HIV to cancer - emanating from the science park. The science park is entirely focused on biomedical and biotechnology research.
“As one of Europe's largest science parks, San Raffaele is home to over 500 researchers, Italy's premier biotech companies, the biggest Italian private hospital San Raffaele and a world-class university. We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with such a broad variety of life science technologies and products,” said Brad Hoy, Director and co-founder of Seven Hills. “It is important that San Raffaele, with such a diverse range of technologies, has international exposure to licensing opportunities. Seven Hills, with its links in the UK and beyond, is an important partner in our licensing strategy,” stated Marco Baccanti, General Manager of Science Park Raf, the technology transfer and business development company at San Raffaele.
