TCP Innovations Opens First US Office

October 6, 2009

CAMBRIDGE, England, October 6 /PRNewswire/ — TCP Innovations, the
Cambridge-based life sciences consultancy and seed investment fund, announced
today the opening of its first office in the United States. The company has
appointed Dr Robert W. Schroff as a Principal Consultant, who will lead a
growing team of US consultants, closely integrated with the existing European
group, to perform consulting projects for US clients. The US operation will
be managed through the new office in Seattle, Washington.

Founded in 2001, TCP Innovations has grown into one of Europe’s most
successful life sciences consultancies, covering therapeutics, diagnostics,
medical devices and healthcare technology. It has also been responsible for
founding half a dozen new life sciences businesses, including the rapidly
growing contract research organisation, Total Scientific, based on the
Babraham science park and Funxional Therapeutics, a clinical-stage
therapeutics company with exciting anti-inflammatory products in development,
which has offices in central Cambridge.

David Grainger, a Principal Consultant at TCP Innovations said: “Opening
an office in the United States, which represents the biggest market for our
services, is an exciting step forward for our company. In an industry
dominated by American companies, it is encouraging to see the UK exporting
our talent in this area while remaining firmly based in Cambridge”.

As he joined the company, Bob Schroff said “The world-class scientific
understanding and entrepreneurial experience that defines the TCP Innovations
team is very much in demand in the US, and I look forward to delivering these
services to the American market. Against a global backdrop of recession and
economic gloom, it is pleasing to see a company expanding into new markets
and going from strength to strength.”

The expansion into the US also marks a new departure for the seed
investment fund, which has recently supported a company based in the San
bay area of California.
