We Are eXmoor. We Are A Leading Technical and Strategic Consultancy Specialising In Cell And Gene Therapies

Cell and Gene therapies are a transformative new category of medicines, with the potential to treat, and even cure many complex, rare, life-limiting, or previously untreatable diseases. Cell and gene therapies are different to “traditional” medicines, and as such have unique manufacturing needs. Many cell therapies for example can involve extracting cells from a patient or donor, modifying them and then re-injecting them into the patient. eXmoor has a depth of experience and expertise specific to Cell & Gene Therapy manufacturing, helping Cell & Gene Therapy developers to accelerate their timelines to manufacture and deliver treatments to patients faster.

We are a safe and experienced pair of hands – our team has more than 500 years’ collective experience in delivering innovative end-to-end GMP cell and gene therapy biomanufacturing projects. Working across three continents we have been supporting businesses commercialise research processes, develop fully licensed facilities and take projects from donation to delivery

ORIGIN STORY
We were founded in 2004 and since our inception we have grown steadily thanks to our hands-on approach. Since 2007, we have specialised in cell & gene therapy manufacturing, designing over 31 manufacturing facilities and providing technical and strategic consultancy support to over 120 clients, on over 400 projects.

In 2017 we established laboratory operations in Bristol, in Future Space. We now have 230m2 of laboratory space, providing world-leading process development services. Our scientists and engineers work to enable our clients to manufacture life-changing cell and gene therapies, by designing and developing robust, scalable and cost-effective manufacturing processes

Innovation Enabler
Our approach, strategy, support, succeed has allowed us to collaborate with some of the most innovative cell and gene therapy developers globally. Some of the projects we have supported include; the development of the URB and concept design for Cancer Research UK Biotherapeutics Development Unit; supporting the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult Development Facility; providing process and GMP compliance through detailed engineering to Great Ormand Street Children’s Charity Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease; and enabling MeiraGTx Gene Therapy Facility to continue to produce large scale, gene therapy process development and manufacturing.

As testament to our innovation, our CEO, Angela Osborne was awarded the prestigious Donald Medal, by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (ICHemE) earlier this year, in recognition of her pioneering work in the field of cell and gene therapy manufacturing. Angela is the first-ever female recipient of the award.
