Cambridge, UK, 21 March 2019Crescendo Biologics Ltd (Crescendo), the drug developer of novel, targeted T-cell enhancing therapeutics, announces winning the award for “Life Science Innovation” at the Business Weekly Awards 2019.

Crescendo was recognized by the judging panel for a very successful year.

It’s great to be recognised amongst the globally prestigious innovation hub of Cambridge. This is a testament to how well our team works together enabling so much success over the past 12 months.”
