Steve Roome PhD, Managing DirectorSteve Roome PhD - Managing Director

I have many friends and colleagues who work in research, and I suppose that being aware of their daily struggles, managing budgets, trying to source quality products and obtain research grants, has led to the birth of Hello Bio. I obtained a PhD in chemistry at Nottingham University, UK, and have had a varied career in life science companies such as Tocris Cookson (now Tocris Bioscience), GE Healthcare (formerly Amersham), Ascent Scientific and Abcam. I founded Hello Bio with the simple aim of helping my friends – and it’s great that more and more scientists are finding us and benefiting from Hello Bio! Steve Roome PhD - Managing Director

Managing the product development side of things at Hello Bio is challenging – but satisfying. My team has quickly built a range of antibodies, small molecule biochemicals, fluorescent tools and proteins and peptides in response to requests from scientists. As well as products that you might use every day, I am keen on finding those exciting, first-of-their-kind tools that could maybe take your research down a different path – or give you a new avenue to explore, that you might never have thought about. If you have one of those hidden gems in your lab – please talk to me! James Flanaghan - Head of Product Development
