US Institute to build major Campus in Oxford

Jul 19 2022

The Oxford Science Park (TOSP), a leading European location for science and technology companies has agreed to sell a 150-year lease on a 3.5 acre site in the park to facilitate expansion by the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine which plans to establish a major presence in Oxford.

The site connects directly with the adjacent 5.9-acre Littlemore House site that the Ellison Institute acquired in December 2021.

The Ellison Institute’s Oxford campus will provide a permanent home to research laboratories, a patient clinic, offices and collaborative spaces supporting Ellison Institute projects, including the Global Health Security Consortium’s work on pandemic preparedness.

It will also enable extensive collaboration with organisations and companies located across the park, including expansion of its existing partnership with Oxford Nanopore Technologies.

Rory Maw, CEO of The Oxford Science Park, said, ‘We’re delighted to welcome the Ellison Institute to the Park and look forward to working with the team to help deliver their vision for the new Oxford campus. This commitment will reinforce the ground-breaking research and development already taking place on the Park, delivering benefits and opportunities for our occupiers and the wider Oxford innovation ecosystem.’

Dinah Rose QC, President of Magdalen College, said, “Following closely on from our strategic partnership with GIC, the Singapore sovereign wealth fund, this is an exciting next step in the evolution of the Park. We look forward to developing a close long-term relationship with the Ellison Institute and to enhancing further Oxford’s enormous contribution to addressing global health challenges.’

 ‘We look forward to continuing the development of our Oxford presence and partnerships,’ said Dr David Agus, founding director and CEO of the Ellison Institute. ‘These acquisitions give us greater capacity to undertake critical biomedical research as well as the educational initiatives of the Institute in collaboration with Oxford University.’
