APTN BioWednesday

There are two major needs that appear to be driving the global life sciences sector. First there is the global need for innovative and effective new treatments, as evidenced by the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus and the growth of illnesses such as dementia. Second, there is the need for investment required to grow companies through developing the required products and hence meeting the patient need. One Nucleus in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Technology Network are delighted to be able to bring you this event which will address aspects of both of these needs
