Summit Therapeutics welcomes investment from US billionaire ahead of busy Q1

Glyn Edwards, chief executive of Summit Therapeutics PLC (LON:SUMM), discusses with Proactive London's Andrew Scott the recent US$25mln investment in the company by US healthcare entrepreneur Robert Duggan.

Duggan was the chief executive and chairman of Pharmacyclics before it was sold to pharma giant AbbVie Inc (NYSE:ABBV) for US$21bn in 2015.

The purchase will take Duggan’s stake, which sat at just 0.2% before, to 48.8%.
