Our Co-founder, Jemma Challinor, presents at the OBN Awards 2022

Precision BioSearch is delighted to present Kevin Lee, the CEO of Bicycle Therapeutics with the ‘Best Established Biotech Company’ award at the OBN Awards 2022.


The OBN Award ceremony was held at the Royal Lancaster and included 36 short-listed companies across 11 categories. Other finalists for the “Best Established Biotech Company” award included Touchlight and C4X Discovery, nominated for the second year running.


This award recognises an established biotech organisation making a significant impact on patients, stands out from the competition, has achieved excellent levels of funding & revenue generation, prominent levels of clinical trial activity and success, along with plenty of developing partnerships and collaborations – all led by an outstanding team. 


The Bicycle Therapeutics team was nominated for their companies’ broad achievement against all criteria of this category; they are working within an area of major medical need and have a very novel and exciting approach.  They have excellent fundraising, partnerships, and industry collaborations in place, and scored well on trials and product development.  They have great news flow, with an impressive and broadly implemented EDI strategy.    


Kevin Lee commented, “Extremely proud to watch this team go from strength to strength. Thank you Bicycle.”
