New Director of Campus Development announced
Araminta Ledger has this week joined Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP) as the new Director of Campus Development.
She will be joining the organisation after two years at the University of Cambridge’s School of Clinical Medicine, where she identified and developed new collaborations and relationships across academia, the NHS and industry.
In her new role, Araminta will be working closely with Liberty Property Trust and Countryside, joint developers for the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, as well as other organisations to promote and manage the future development of the site.
This will involve identifying/attracting new organisations to Phase 2 of the Campus to fit the strategic aims of enhancing Cambridge as the UK’s capital of Life Sciences.
Malcolm Lowe-Lauri , Executive Director at Cambridge University Health Partners, said: “Araminta was the outstanding candidate for this role with her background in laboratory science, industry and clinical research. Over the next few months, she will be working with the joint developers of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, as we work together to grow and develop the site. With the Government’s Industrial Strategy, the success of Cambridge in attracting talent and investment, this is an incredibly exciting time for us all as we look to deliver new opportunities for the city and the East of England.”
Araminta Ledger said: “I am very much looking forward to working with our partners across the site and further afield to continue the exciting development of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We are in a unique position where researchers, clinicians and industry are able to work together in one place – this close collaboration allows new ideas, techniques and treatments to develop which can only benefit patients here and across the UK.
