LifeArc is a self-funded medical research charity. Our work advances the translation of early science along the path to healthcare treatments or diagnostics. We have been doing this for more than 25 years and our work has resulted in a diagnostic for antibiotic resistance and four licensed medicines. Our success allows us to explore new approaches to advise, research and fund translation. Our model is built on collaboration, and we partner with a broad range of groups including medical research charities, research organisations, industry and academic scientists. We are motivated by patient need and scientific opportunity. To find out more, visit lifearc.org.
