Treating solid tumors through the systemic delivery of oncolytic viruses.

PsiOxus is very proud to also announce that we have been recognised by Fierce Biotech in this year’s Fierce 15. This is a list of up-and-coming biotech companies believed to have a chance of becoming the Next Big Thing through a combination of the best science with the best teams.  Chosen from a record number of nominations submitted by 275,000 biotech and pharma industry leaders and the editors of Fierce Biotech, PsiOxus were only 1 of 2 European companies listed, and the only UK company…!
