A new chapter for Chiltern

Published: 7 March 2016

Chiltern, a leading provider of clinical research, has had an incredible journey at Roslin BioCentre, joining the Midlothian science park originally in 1999 as Nexus Oncology, a start-up biotech company launched by oncology drug development specialist Clare Wareing.

In 2012, the company became an Ockham Development Group company and in 2014 was acquired by Chiltern with Clare moving into the role of Chief Development Officer. Chiltern is a leading, global contract research organisation focused on providing expertise, engagement, and tailored, responsive solutions to meet the demands of biotech and pharmaceutical partners of all sizes.

For Roslin BioCentre, in the heart of the Edinburgh Science Triangle, the transition from Nexus Oncology to becoming a part of global leader Chiltern is a fine example of the graduation of a company and the level of support the science park provides from incubation stage through periods of extended growth and development.

Malcolm Bateman, Chair of Roslin BioCentre, said:
“It has been a pleasure to support the team over the years, accommodating the changing needs as the business has progressed through various stages and transformed since 1999.”
