Hello, or should I say konnichiwa, as we return from Japan following our successful trip this month. We led a delegation of UK scientists and companies to Tokyo and Yokohama for a packed week of events, speaking slots, and partnering sessions. Read more about the visit below.
Great news this month as DigitalHealth.London Accelerator company Lumeon is now participating in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars. This is off the back of a trip they participated in with Digital Health.London and MedCity to Los Angeles this summer, and will see them collaborating with Cedars-Sinai to identify digital care pathways that can be deployed in care settings throughout the US.
It was also great to see MedCity was highlighted in a Deloitte report commissioned by HEFCE to analyse the impact and return on investment that their Catalyst funding is delivering. I have written a blog about how invaluable this funding has been to establish MedCity and to support our life sciences programmes.
And finally, Neelam Patel and Sinéad Kearns are heading to BioEurope in Berlin from 6 – 8 November, so drop them a line or find them on the partnering system if you would like to meet. I am also getting ready to speak at the FT Global Pharma and Biotech conference next week on what makes clusters ticks, and we are preparing for Genesis where we are hosting a breakfast session on UK-Japan opportunities. I look forward to catching up with people there.
