From Eliot Forster, MedCity's Executive Chair
It has been a week since the UK voted in favour of leaving the EU. I understand that this has created some uncertainty for everyone working across the Life Science sector. I wanted to take this opportunity to say that this decision does not change our position as a world-leading cluster for life sciences research and development. We continue to have outstanding research centres, a rich research ecosystem, globally recognised universities and hospitals and access to fantastic talent.
At this time nothing will officially change in terms of our relationship with the EU. The MedCity team are committed to continue promoting and growing the excellence of our region, our expertise and maintaining our vibrant community. London and the greater south east is still very much open for business and we will continue to champion and encourage life sciences investment, entrepreneurship and industry.
For those of you who haven’t seen it already, the Mayor of London has released a statement which can be found here.
With best wishes,
