Mr Antony Odell the managing director of Tissue Regenix said it and other science firms need a dedicated science park, where they can grow and develop as a cluster, to retain skills and wealth in Yorkshire.
The company recently raised £25m to commercialise its innovative technology. Currently they are outgrowing its space at York Science Park. Mr Odell also said “We are looking at premises in York and Leeds. There’s not a dedicated bio park in Leeds”
Leeds City Council said it has narrowed down five possible sites to develop a healthcare science park. The sites include Leeds Valley Park, Logic Leeds, Thorpe Park, Hawks Park and Thorp Arch Estate near Wetherby.
