Scancell Ltd is a company focused on the discovery and development of products that harness the immune system in a unique way to treat or prevent cancer. Founded in 1997 as a spin-out from the University of Nottingham, Scancell is based in state-of-the-art facilities at the BioCity innovation and technology centre, Nottingham. The Company, which currently employs 12 staff, has secured £4.7million of private equity and commercial funding to date.
