Leadership Series – Collaborating with the Welsh Life Sciences Sector

10:00 - 18:30 Wednesday 6 March 2019


As part of Wales in London week, OneNucleus and MediWales are working together to showcase 'Welsh Life Science' In London on 6th March 2019.


Wales possesses excellence in life science research, leading to the discovery and development of innovative medicines, devices and diagnostics. There is an opportunity for the researchers to work more widely with companies, investors and researchers beyond the Welsh border.


To address this challenge, One Nucleus and MediWales are collaborating to deliver an event during Wales in London Week to highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for collaboration between our respective networks.


There are strengths across multiple therapeutic areas in Wales with the key foci of this event being:

1.       The research and trends in the Welsh Life Science sector
