'How to secure the best for life sciences after Brexit'

Published: 7 February 2017

The APPG on Medical Research will today host a collaborative parliamentary drop-in event titled ‘How to ensure the best for life sciences after Brexit’. The event will provide parliamentarians with the opportunity to meet with representatives from across the life sciences community, including charities, industry and the NHS. Guests will also hear from Professor Sir Robert Lechler, President of the Academy of Medical Sciences.

The event is being held in partnership with the APPG on Rare, Genetic and Undiagnosed conditions, the APPG for Muscular Dystrophy as well as life science industry partners.

Jo Churchill MP, Chair of the APPG on Medical Research said “The UK has a uniquely vibrant life science sector, which not only contributes significantly to our international standing and competitiveness, but is vital for the health of the nation.

"This event, bringing together a vast array of organisations, demonstrates the united aspirations of the life sciences sector to ensure that innovation and research thrives and flourishes in the UK. I hope that this collaborative effort can be continued to represent a strong voice for life sciences throughout the negotiation process, as well as within Government’s Industrial Strategy, and ultimately ensure the best outcome for life sciences after Brexit.”
