Our vision is to empower people to take personal ownership of their health.



Next Biosciences’ mission is to innovate and invest in future health possibilities that combine medicine, science and technology.



Our success is driven by our people. It is our responsibility to create a highly regarded, dynamic team that lives by our values.

Our Values & Principles

Our success is driven by our people and creating a highly regarded, dynamic team that live by our values:



We believe in our vision and love what we do. We perform our roles with purpose, pride and a positive attitude.



Excellence is in our DNA. We are committed to the highest standards of quality in everything that we do by using measurable objectives and continuous self-evaluation.



Leaders take ownership. We are curious, love adventure and explore uncharted territories to discover opportunities. We value diverse perspectives and challenge ideas openly. We’re never complacent in assuming that we know everything. We believe in humility and learning from mistakes.



Innovation drives us. We welcome disruptive technology that democratises and simplifies our lives. We are flexible, agile and embrace change.



We believe in collaboration and leveraging collective genius to create solutions that, individually, might never have been possible.



We value honesty, transparency and fairness. We are committed to the ethics of the medical profession in our conduct and actions.



We acknowledge, and respect differences in each other, regardless of background, ability or beliefs. We embrace our diversity and seek understanding to enhance our unity. We respect privacy and personal choice without prejudice.



We care about our people, partners, patients, clients, and the community in which we operate. We’re all in a symbiotic relationship and constantly strive to enhance this, as neither can flourish without the other.

We embrace our overall vision of empowering people to take ownership of their health and, in the process, improve overall quality of life for all.


Next Biosciences is manager-owned.
