THE LARGER CONTEXT

Earlier this year, Panthera and Rutherford Health launched an oncology clinical trial network for the development of new cancer treatments. The collaboration is called Panthera@theRutherford and combines Rutherford’s UK network of oncologists and Panthera’s expertise in managing clinical trials.  

ON THE RECORD

Professor John Lyon, chairman of Preston-based Panthera said: “I am pleased that Gresham House Ventures is investing in Panthera and we are delighted to have such a reputable and respected investment house as a shareholder. Despite the challenges faced with Covid, we have built Panthera into a significant player with dedicated sites across the UK in Preston, Manchester and London.”

Brendan Gulston, investment director at Gresham House Ventures, added: “We are very pleased to be able to support such an innovative and experienced team as they look to build a market leading site management organisation.”
