About Us

Abingworth has been investing in life science companies since the early days of the biotechnology industry.

As the industry’s footprint and experience grew, so did ours: from one office in London with a handful of investments to a transatlantic operation that has invested in over 180 companies. The experience and expertise we have accumulated as a result are, we believe, key assets for our portfolio companies.

Abingworth’s Transatlantic Reach

Even in the age of instant electronic communication, there is no substitute for face-to-face discussions and informal get-togethers. That’s why we have offices in key biotech hubs in both the US and Europe, so that we can interact more productively with the entrepreneurs we support. These offices also enable us to tap more effectively into the deep talent pools and scientific networks in and around those hubs.
