The ‘ON Helix’ translational research conference will bring together key experts from industry and academia to discuss how we can help ground-breaking primary research successfully transition into treatments for patients.

The topics covered during this one day event will centre around:

  • The UK business environment 
  • Research funding
  • Scientific and clinical research excellence 
  • How ideas and early stage inventions are turned into innovative health treatments 

The high profile global leaders that will give presentations and/or join in as part of panel discussions include:

  • Dr. Mene Pangalos, Executive Vice president Innovative Medicines and Early Research at AstraZeneca
  • Sir Mike Rawlins, Chairman of the EAHSN and President of the Royal Society of Medicine
  • Sir Gregory Winter, Master, Trinity College, Cambridge and founder of Bicycle Therapeutics Ltd
  • Rob Pinnock, Director Scientific Liaison, UK, Ireland, Portugal and Spain, Merck Sharp & Dohme 
  • Hermann Hauser, serial Cambridge entrepreneur and venture capitalist 
  • and other highly regarded and respected personalities form industry and academia

 This event is aimed at:

  • Biotech and healthcare company, senior executives
  • Academic technology transfer executives
  • Pharma business and research development directors
  • Life science investors
  • Technical and professional service providers

At the end of the talk and panel discussions, there will be a drinks reception and plenty of time for networking and partnering.
