Back to School…

Sarah Haywood, CEO, MedCity

However old I get, I can’t help but start September with the thought “back to school”. While I may not be returning to formal education, it certainly feels like a new term as we plan our activities for the next period, already running well into 2017. On 28 September, we formally launch our new SME focused seed fund – Collaborate to Innovate; we are planning missions to South Korea, Japan and BioEurope; and launching our digital health campaign.

 

I am also delighted to welcome three new members to the MedCity team. Yaesel Lee has joined us to help deliver the Collaborate to Innovate programme and to help with the running of MedCity’s core activities; she is working with Riam Kanso, who has joined us to run the Collaborate to Innovate programme; and Kim Watson has joined us as our Communications manager. You can find their contact details here.
