Etcembly establishes new lab & office space at TOSP

Immune-focused machine learning firm joins leading AI cohort on Park

Oxford, UK, July 8 2021 – Etcembly Ltd, a machine learning biotech that is decoding immune pattern recognition of T cell receptors, has moved into more than 1,000 sq ft of new laboratory and office premises within The Oxford Science Park (TOSP), one of the UK’s leading parks for science and technology companies. The company, which recently closed an oversubscribed seed round with private investors, is now looking to hire talented scientists and data engineers to develop further its machine learning platform EMLy™. The technology is expected to accelerate the discovery of novel immunotherapies for a range of diseases.

The founders and management team of Etcembly, Dr Michelle Teng, Chief Executive Officer, and Dr Jacob Hurst, Chief Technology Officer, have a unique blend of machine learning and immunology expertise. The company recently signed an exclusive research collaboration with Zelluna Immunotherapy.

Etcembly joins a group of thriving companies which use artificial intelligence techniques in their research. This includes Exscientia, using AI to precision engineer future drugs for patients and revolutionise drug discovery, MoA Technology, which is focused on the development of novel herbicides with positive environmental and economic impact, and Sensyne Health, which is applying clinical AI in health and life sciences.

Michelle Teng, CEO of Etcembly, said, ‘Our new laboratory and office facilities allow us to continue the company’s ambitious development plans following our recent fundraising and collaboration deal. We expect to thrive here in The Oxford Science Park’s environment of innovation and entrepreneurship.’

Rory Maw, Bursar of Magdalen College & Interim MD of TOSP, said, ‘We are delighted to see such an exciting company expanding here on the Park. Etcembly’s approach has great potential, and we expect it to have a major impact on health, alongside the other companies in the AI cohort at The Oxford Science Park.’

Created in 1991, the Park upholds the College’s heritage and provides one of the most influential science & technology environments in the UK. There is approaching 750,000 square feet of workspace accommodation across the Park, which is now home to 2,700 people and more than 130 businesses. These range from start-ups based in the Magdalen Centre innovation hub to major international companies and include Blue Earth Diagnostics, MiroBio, OrganOx, OxSonics Therapeutics, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, OXGENE, ProImmune, Oxford Sciences Innovation, Evox Therapeutics, Vaccitech, Exscientia, Sensyne Health and Intuitive Surgical.

In addition to being a key property investment, the Park is at the heart of Magdalen College’s strategy to support discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship. It will continue to develop The Oxford Science Park as a long-term strategic asset, with ambitious plans to create an additional 500,000+ sq ft of office and laboratory space on the remaining 12 acres of land over the next 3-5 years. This additional capacity will support the growth of businesses already based on the Park, providing flexible workspace accommodation, and enabling new companies to enjoy the Park’s exceptional environment and collegiate and collaborative ethos.
