BIA regional focus: the North West as a centre for disease preparedness

January 21

Thursday 21 January 2021

Join us online on our virtual event platform for this networking event. This event will look at how the North West of England is emerging a centre for disease preparedness, and will have presentations from several organisations at the cutting edge of these developments including:

  • Evotec, a drug discovery solutions company providing expertise and capabilities to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as to academic institutions.
  • Infex Therapeutics has been working for a number of years on anti-microbial resistance, and will share their experience on this fight.
  • Yourgene was not intending to focus on infectious disease, but were able to pivot to using their technology for COVID-19 diagnostics. They will present on lessons learned during this process for the next infectious disease event.

The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Kath Mackay. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Finally, there will be a chance to network remotely using Remo, a platform designed to mimic in-person networking as closely as possible.
