UCLB spinout Autolus Therapeutics has been named in The Guardian’s ‘Six Firms to Watch in 2023’.

Spun out from University College London in 2014, the business develops programmed T cell therapies: also known as living medicines, they re-engineer patients’ immune systems to recognise and attack cancer.
