LifeArc is a UK registered and self-funding charity, with a 25-year legacy of collaborating with scientists on diagnostics and therapeutics focused on improving the lives of patients through medical innovation. As a self- funded charity, LifeArc can reinvest any income generated into furthering medical research. LifeArc drives medical innovation through its own translational research and works with a range of partners from industry, charities, universities, research organisations and others involved in improving lives for patients. The charity is undergoing a transformative change following the £1.3bn monetisation of a royalty interest from LifeArc’s work some years ago. The resources generated from this work have given LifeArc a tremendous opportunity to significantly enhance its own research activities aimed at advancing promising science into new health interventions for patients.

This role represents the opportunity to be a part of a charity that is transforming medical innovation and having an impact on the lives of patients.
