Innovate UK, KTN & the Precision Medicines Centres of Excellence Network will be hosting an event on Precision Medicine on 30th Jan in London.

The UK has embarked on a very ambitious journey to become the home of Precision Medicine. This journey started in 2010 when the precursor to Innovate UK, the Technology Strategy Board, and a consortium of Governmental bodies and charities funded the Stratified Medicine Innovation Platform Programme Coordination Group. This was followed a year later with  the publication of a Technology Roadmap, which identified thematic areas which would need to be addressed to accelerate the research, development and uptake of stratified medicine in the UK.

On the 30th of January 2020, Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network are collaborating with the PM Centres of Excellence Network to deliver an event at Stamford Bridge in London showcasing existing capability and assets that reside in the UK. This event will also open up the conversation to ensure  other groups working in Precision Medicine in the UK also have a platform to highlight their skills and capabilities. Alison Cave (ISCF Director: Accelerating Detection of Disease at Innovate UK) will be providing the keynote speech.

 

The following 6 Centres of Excellence make up the initial cohort of the emerging network and will be running sessions at the event:

  • Belfast
  • Cardiff
  • Glasgow (iCAIRD)
  • Leeds
  • Manchester
  • Oxford
