There is no doubt that the UK’s life sciences sector is exposed to Brexit. The close integration of the UK’s regulatory and research environment with the EU and the international nature of the sector means that separation is likely to be difficult and disruptive.

However we believe that with the right strategy the sector, despite Brexit, can thrive:

  • The UK is one of the best places in the world for life sciences – there are five world-leading universities clustered around Oxford, Cambridge and London
  • It leads the way in emerging fields such as genomics and mitochondrial donation therapy
  • The Government is committed to protecting the sector and its industrial strategy has had life sciences at its centre – there is a new Life Sciences Council which brings together ministers and industry
  • Global life sciences businesses are continuing to invest in the UK - last year the UK received the highest level of life science foreign direct investment in Europe

Our event will look at the challenges facing the sector and discuss the opportunities to ensure that the UK is the best place in the world to develop and launch innovative medicines, technologies and diagnostics.

We are delighted that Professor Chas Bountra, Pro Vice Chancellor, Innovation, University of Oxford and Bill Haynes, Head & Vice President, Novo Nordisk Research Centre, Oxford will be delivering the keynote. There will then be a Q&A panel discussion chaired by Lord Wood of Anfield.
