Bio is an award-winning spinout from the University of Cambridge founded in 2016. By applying an engineering approach to synthetic and stem cell biology, our team have developed proprietary technologies for the efficient and consistent reprogramming of human cells used in research, drug discovery, and cell therapy. ‘Bit Bio’ represents the two fields — coding and biology — that determine the Identity of every human cell. Ultimately, bits are the building blocks of code, just as cells are the building blocks of life. This is reflective of what what we do at Bit Bio: precise reprogramming of human stem cells.
Bit Bio's mission and focus are to enable a new generation of therapies through democratising access to consistent and functional human cells. Our goal is to replace animal experiments with standardised models for drug development and toxicology, improve research and drug discovery, and lower the cost and extend the application of cell therapies.
Bit Bio provides a vibrant and dynamic work environment in an exciting, fast-moving time for biology. They work with cutting edge technologies and with their world-leading scientific advisory board.
At Bit Bio, we are passionate about engineering human cells that will enable the medicine of the future. To do this we need talented and curious people who want to make an impact on the future of healthcare.
