EDM 256 Accelerating Human Relevant Life Sciences in the UK

I can confirm I have signed EDM #256 Accelerating Human Relevant Life Sciences in the UK.

Scotland’s universities and research institutes conduct world-leading research, making science and research one of Scotland’s key strengths. The life sciences sector in Scotland contributes to new digital technologies, advances in genomics, big data and precision medicine and is a key player in driving high-value medical manufacturing.

The Scottish Government will continue to develop and drive close links between industry, academia and the health sector in order to support improved wellbeing and inclusive growth.

In partnership with the UK Government and industry, the new Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre will offer pharmaceutical companies, from start‐ups through to multinationals, a unique opportunity to collaboratively develop and adopt novel manufacturing techniques into their own manufacturing processes and supply chains.
