Resurrect Bio is a plant biotechnology start-up based in west London. We find ways of using gene editing to make crops resistant to disease.

We’re a spin-out of The Sainsbury Lab Norwich, a world class research institute focussing on molecular plant microbe interactions. We’ve raised two investment rounds, with the most recent one exceeding £1.6M of venture capital investment. We’ve won two Innovate UK research grants and are currently developing products to protect soybean against the worlds top threats – a disease called soybean rust and a pest called soybean cyst nematode.

We’re based at the Imperial College Incubator in Scale Space White City. It’s a building and community of many high-growth start-ups trying to solve the worlds’ biggest problems.
