Biotech start-up DJS Antibodies has become the second occupier to move into the newly converted laboratory space at The Oxford Trust’s Wood Centre for Innovation.

DJS has taken more than 2,000 sq ft of laboratory and office space for its nine staff. The deal follows the announcement in March that another biotech start up, Samsara Theraputics, was the first to take up the new 3,300 sq ft of space specially designed and fitted for start ups by Thames Tap partner Bulb Laboratories.

David Llewellyn (pictured), chief executive of DJS Antibodies, said: “There could not be a better place for DJS to take its next steps as a rapidly growing biotech company.

“With state-of-the art new laboratories, right between Oxford’s two major hospitals, and just a stone’s throw from some of the best academics and young companies in the world, we’re thrilled to call the Wood Centre for Innovation our new home.”
