Scottish Enterprise Backs Top Bio Event
News Mar 23, 2006
Scottish Enterprise has announced that it is backing this year’s SCIpharm 2006 Conference in Edinburgh.
The development agency is hosting a business networking lunch for attendees and is also helping Scottish companies take part in the Biotechnology Showcase event on Tuesday 16th May.
SCIpharm 2006 is an industry-led event organised by the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), May 14-17 at the EICC, Edinburgh, Scotland.
"A big part of Scottish Enterprise’s role is to bridge the gap between publicly-funded early stage research and privately-supported commercial development," said Scottish Enterprise’s Ed Hutchinson.
"The partnership with Scottish Enterprise and SCI will help to profile and promote Scottish Life Science companies and academia involved in research and development."
"Over the past five years the life sciences sector in Scotland has doubled in size. We are committed to helping the industry grow further through the development of new Scottish companies and by attracting investment from outside."
"This conference will be the ideal showcase to profile the range of top class companies based here and the type of world class work that’s going on here," added Ed.

Targeting a Leaky Protein that Causes ParalysisNews
A rare genetic disorder in which people are overcome suddenly with profound muscle weakness is caused by a hole in a membrane protein that allows sodium ions to leak across cell membranes. Compounds containing a chemical group called guanidinium can block the pore created by the mutation and stop the sodium leak without altering the voltage sensor’s ability to function.READ MORE
