MedCity and the Northern Health Science Alliance are heading to Korea and Japan this October, including the annual biotech partnering conference, BioJapan, and we are inviting UK life sciences companies and scientific academics to join the mission.

Japan is the second largest Pharmaceutical market in the world and a global leader in cell and gene therapies, and is seeking to utilise and pioneer innovative technologies to support home care for their rapidly ageing society.

We have led several life sciences and healthcare delegations to Japan over the past few years and have extensive connections to the major industry and academic associations; including Japan Bioindustries Association (JBA), Japan Health Sciences Foundation (JHSF), LINK-J and The Forum for Innovative Regenerative Medicine (FIRM).

We are looking for innovative companies who want to expand into the Japanese market and researchers looking for collaborative opportunities, to join this high-profile delegation.
