Oxford-based biotechnology company Evox Therapeutics Ltd has announced the appointment of Peter Jones as Vice President of CMC.

Previous to joining Evox – a leading exosome therapeutics company – Peter held positions with Autolus Therapeutics, Oxford Biomedica, GlaxoSmithkline, and Genzyme.

“Peter has been at the forefront of developing bio manufacturing processes for many of the newest and most cutting-edge biotechnology platforms, including both lentiviral gene therapy vectors, CAR T cells, as well as the more traditional APIs and biotherapeutics such as antibodies,” said CEO Antonin de Fougerolles, Ph.D.

“He will be an invaluable addition to the team, and we look forward to his contributions as we advance product candidates that emerge from our exosome platform.”

Peter has more than 30 years of process development experience in the biopharmaceutical industry, building and leading cross-functional teams to support clinical and commercial development.

During those years, he has led the development of manufacturing platforms and played a leadership role in the commercialisation of over 16 products across small molecule, biopharmaceutical gene and cell therapy applications.

“What attracted me most to Evox was the progress they have made in developing an industry-leading proprietary DeliverEX™ technology platform for unlocking the transformative potential of exosomes as a new class of medicines,” said Peter.

“As the company’s internal and partnered programs progress towards clinical development, I look forward to working with the talented team of scientists and engineers here at Evox to industrialise commercially scalable, highly efficient and consistent manufacturing processes to deliver life-changing therapies to patients.”


Peter Davison is deputy editor of The Business Magazine. He has spent his life in journalism – doing work experience in newsrooms in and around Bristol while still at school, and landing his first job on a local newspaper aged 19. By 28 he was the youngest newspaper editor in the country.

An early advocate of online news, he spent the first years of the 2000s telling his bosses that the internet posed both the biggest opportunity and greatest threat to the newspaper industry and the art of journalism. He was right on both counts.

Since 2006 he has enjoyed a career as a freelance journalist. He lives in rural Wiltshire with one wife, two children, and three cats.
