Dr. Anne Blackwood, CEO of Health Enterprise East (HEE), was interviewed recently for the Mustard TV’s new business series – Dynamic East - where business writer, Huw Sayers, speaks to talented and inspiring businesses leaders across East Anglia.
Anne discussed the work HEE is doing to develop and support innovation in the region, specifically talking about Ablatus Therapeutics, a new company founded to develop and commercialise a novel technology to treat the most challenging, and often inoperable, solid cancer tumours.
With support from HEE, the company was spun-out of Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where the technology originated. Investment came from Anglia Capital Group, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and the Low Carbon Innovation Fund, totalling £500K and is being used to fund further technology development towards CE-marking and clinical trials.
