Reimagining the future of Life Sciences

Our Annual Life Science Summit will take place on April 19, 2023 at The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

We are extremely excited to announce our keynote speaker for the summit, Francois Regis Martelet MD, CEO of Scandion Oncology. Francois Martelet’s career in the global pharmaceutical and biotech industry spans more than 30 years and he has more than 20 years of experience as senior level executive.

Our Annual Life Science Summit will connect global industry leaders, emerging fast-growth companies, innovative life science founders and members of the investment community.

Moderated by Stewart Wood, Oxford University academic, Member of the UK House of Lords & Director at Good Law Project, our panel of esteemed experts will investigate the future of life sciences and explore the current and future challenges in the sector. Without doubt, the UK is currently at a crossroads – it has the potential to become the leading global hub for life sciences, but by what terms Britain will define itself as a science superpower in the future?

Join us to learn about the opportunities and challenges businesses currently face in the UK and globally. Participants will have the chance to gain valuable insights into the life sciences landscape as our panel members share their first-hand experience from sectors such as transport and logistics, precision healthcare, health tech and investment.

This is a high-level panel discussion designed to discover actionable insights in the healthcare and life science sectors.
