James Drake - Chairman

I am the Founder and Chairman of Future Science Group, focusing on breakthrough medical, biotechnological and scientific research, as well as a number of philanthropic initiatives.

After working in research and then publishing for a number of years, I founded Ashley Publications and Expert Reviews Ltd in the 1990s (subsequently acquired by Informa), followed by Future Science Group in the early 2000s.

Alongside our publishing group, I have also founded a collection of philanthropic foundations spanning sport, science, art, literature and music. The first of these was The Drake Foundation, which is a not-for-profit committed to understanding and improving the health and welfare of sports players through scientific research and collaboration. In the Foundation’s first 5 years, we have invested well over £2 million into scientific research and resources to support sport, science and the wider society.

In 2015, I established The Drake Calleja Trust to support exceptional musicians from underprivileged backgrounds at the start of their careers. We have since expanded the Trust to support both classical and non-classical musicians, producers and songwriters, with saxophonist YolanDa Brown heading up the DrakeYolanDa Award for non-classical musicians.

As well as being a keen amateur artist myself, I am also Founder of a number of art and literature projects. For example, my team – on behalf of the artist’s family – are currently creating a database and catalogue raisonné for the great Rodin contemporary Paul Troubetzkoy.
