On Wednesday 11th February the METRC Business Development team attended the Nanotechnology KTN “Nano 4 Life” conference. The team aims to build links between companies from across the globe and the “soft” nanotechnology expertise from academia throughout the North of England.
This one day meeting was run in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust and explored the key areas within the life sciences arena where nanotechnology could advance the provision of healthcare and improve product discovery.  Keynote speakers included Dr Thomas Kellner (GSK) and Dr Clive Washington (AstraZeneca) who gave an insight into big pharma’s views on nanotechnology.

The event provided a great opportunity to network with a wide variety of academics and industry representatives all of whom approach the nanotech world from a different direction.
