Short Films

An Interview with Alex Birks | SUJI BFR

In the first of our series of short films, we talk to Alex Birks of SUJI BFR. Where it all began, what he managed to do with £50 and what the next five years look like.


‘An Interview with…’ a series of short life science films that put revolutionary ideas into context.


Meet the curious, the pioneers and the radicals going toe-to-toe with the challenges that affect us all, globally. Hear how and why they’re trying to change the world. We talk to the people behind the big ideas. The scientists and entrepreneurs who are redefining the way we live, shaping the future of our healthcare and the environment in which we live.


In our short life science films we talk to people from across BioCity locations in different fields of the life sciences at various stages of venture development, from the spark of an idea to products on the shelf.


The Accelerator Graduate, the investee, the growing business. The CRO, the med-tech start-up and environmental tech entrepreneur. Where did it all begin, what’s gone right and what’s gone wrong? The projects, problems and ideas are varied, but every individual within the BioCity Collective are working with a common purpose. To help ideas out of the lab and into the world.
