Andy Richards receives BIA Lifetime Achievement Award
News Feb 13, 2013
He said: "It is truly gratifying to be honoured by the BIA in this way, and I would like to thank all of those who have worked with me. The UK life-science ecosystem is a tremendous community with the profound capacity to do real good. It punches well above its weight in global impact and has many more successes than are recognised and reported. As we enter the age of biology and personalised medicine it is a great place to be with great people."
As well as sitting on the BBSRC Council and BBSRC Audit Board, Dr Richards is a founder, active investor and director of more than 20 innovative healthcare and life-science companies over the last 12 years.
Tim Edwards, BIA Chairman, said: "Andy Richards is an enthusiast for and champion of UK bioscience. He has established numerous companies that are getting new medicines from an idea to approved products that help patients. He is a true leader in our sector who has continued to put his own money where his mouth is. Finally, and quite possibly most importantly, Andy spends time inspiring school and university students to be entrepreneurial and to consider following a career in an innovative sector, such as life sciences."
