Showcasing Oxford’s Life Sciences Research

Oxford is home to a growing biotech cluster which is known for its world leading research and advanced technologies.

The Life Sciences industry is a key contributor to the UK’s economic growth, and is essential to improving patient care. Nicola joined the Life Sciences Minister, George Freeman, at Oxford University’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering to hear from Research Groups and Health Science academics and learn about some of the vital research underway in the high tech bio medicines industry across the county.

The Minister congratulated field experts on their innovative research in areas such as vaccine and medicine development, for example the Oxford Ebola Vaccine Trial, and he and Nicola also met with leaders of Oxfordshire Health Trust and University Hospitals Trust to discuss the industry’s outstanding contribution to healthcare research.
