A Note From Richard Soll and Alexis Ji

Welcome to WuXi’s first newsletter focused on the San Francisco Bay Area life science community!  The birthplace of the biotech industry, the Bay Area life sciences today flourish as an epicenter of biomedical innovation with some of the best research universities and institutes in the world, home to more than 1,600 bioscience employers including many venture-backed companies, research and innovation centers for pharmaceutical giants, world class life science incubators, and the collaborative Mission Bay UCSF campus. 

For over a decade, WuXi has been developing open access platforms to enable anyone or any company to find more effective therapies and healthcare products for patients.  WuXi is proud to be part of this collective commitment with the establishment of our new Mission Bay office to better serve the local community. 

We hope you enjoy this and future newsletters! 

Best Regards, 

Richard Soll, SVP International Discovery Service Unit, WuXi AppTec
Alexis Ji, Principal, WuXi Venture Fund
