The Science Industry Partnership took a stand at the important annual event, which was themed Enhancing a Life Sciences powerhouse in a post-Brexit world.

Key themes focused on how the UK can enhance its position as a Life Sciences powerhouse as we near Brexit.

Key note speeches and panel discussions, debated what it will take to keep the UK at the forefront of Life Sciences including a vision for UK regulation, utilisation of data to transform UK research and putting the UK at the forefront of Innovation for the benefit of UK patients.

Speakers included Baroness Nicola Blackwood (Health Minister), Professor Sir John Bell (Life Sciences Industrial Strategy), Professor Mark Caulfield (Genomics England), Dr Sam Roberts (NHSE), Dr Ian Hudson (MHRA), Tim Sheppard (IQVIA), Professor Andrew Morris (HDRUK) and Sarah Wilkinson (NHS Digital) who helped navigate the key themes of the day and addressed what it will take to ensure that the UK maximises opportunities to stay at the forefront as a leader in Life Sciences.

The SIP stand set out the research themes for the 2030 Strategy, and its collaboration with OLS, ABPI and BIA. This very much linked to the key theme of the day.
