This episode we explore Positive Impact. UCLB is helping to create a new generation of businesses from UCL academics specifically with positive societal impact at their heart. The commercialisation process can be a long road requiring financial, legal, and practical support.

Nigel Campbell meets two inventors, Buffy Price Co-founder and COO of Carbon Re, an AI and Climate Tech company spinout from UCL and Cambridge, and Professor Pete Coffey from UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Founder of Tenpoint Therapeutics; both who are on that journey on how their inventions might improve our future world.

We also talk to Dr Anne Lane, CEO of UCLB to find out how UCLB finds the bright ideas which will improve lives, and what it takes to scale to a point where they are having true impact.

Soundtrack by Harry Penfold and Thomas Shearwood.
