This special event marks NIBSCs 40th anniversary. The symposium will provide a unique platform for cross-collaboration and discussion between industry, public sector, academia and regulators and focus on the latest thinking and opportunities arising from the new Biological Medicines.
The goal is to identify potential solutions, future work programmes and productive collaborations that overcome the key regulatory challenges and facilitate accelerated access to safe and effective biologicals.
We are delighted that Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer, will be giving a keynote introductory address. The event will feature international and leading experts presenting on the four key scientific themes.
