Innova Biosciences (Cambridge, UK), inventor of the World’s easiest to use conjugation kit called Lightning-Link™, is pleased to announce the appointment of two non-executive directors Tim Bernard and Lucy Block to the Board.

Lucy has a wealth of experience in developing start-up to early stage biotechnology companies.

At CRIL Lucy was instrumental in growing and nurturing several biotech start-ups including Phico, Ashby Biosystems, and Endocrine Pharmaceuticals to name a few. Lucy also has experience of patenting and IP portfolio management.

Commenting on the announcement Dr Nick Gee, CEO of Innova Biosciences ‘I am delighted that Lucy and Tim have agreed to join the Board of Directors. The appointments significantly strengthen our capabilities in the areas of sales, financial management and strategic planning, and will help the company to maintain its current high rate of growth’
