Driving success in Life Science & Healthcare: Convergence of Technology, Investment and People

Advances in R&D technologies, an increasingly inter-disciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of health disorders and a continuing diversification of capital sources is enabling the transformation of great science into great solutions at a global scale. 

Whilst global healthcare challenges are ever changing, advances in science and technology have never been faster. The new insights and ability such advances afford those discovering, developing and delivering better solutions for patients leaves the sector well-placed to meet the challenges ahead. Addressing patients’ unmet needs of course brings for researchers, clinicians, investors, payers and policymakers the opportunity to make a real world difference. 

Under the overarching theme of Driving success in Life Sciences & Healthcare: Convergence of Technology, Investment and Talent our 18th Annual Genesis Conference, will take place on Thursday 13 December 2018 in London. The event will again engage all the key elements for those active in R&D, finance, policy making and service provision across Life Sciences, Digital and Health Technology fields in creating a vision of where the sector is heading. Over 70 expert speakers and panellists will lead sessions discussing which approaches will deliver better outcomes for patients, investors and payers.

Cambridge Wireless will be leading panel sessions on the Moore, 4th Floor.

Confirmed session leads and pannelists include:

  • Collette Johnson - Geospock
  • Peter Ferguson - Arm Ltd.
  • Peter Jarritt - National Institute for Health Research
  • David Walker - Phillips Research Laboratories
  • Nigel Whittle - Plextek
  • Paul Winter - TTP Group

An excellent oppurtunity to engage and network with Life Science and Digital and Health Technology leads.
