The Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is supporting a key event which aims to help develop the North West's regenerative medicine capabilities across academia, the NHS and industry.

Organised by Bionow, the North West Regional Development Agency's biotechnology sector group, the event will bring together business, academic and clinical delegates to assess the current state, infrastructure and financing of regenerative medicine in the NW.

The programme includes presentations and discussion on: Developing facilities for companies at all stages, access to markets and partnering, appropriate staffing and training at all levels, knowledge base and networks, access to clinical trials sites; Supporting growth, training/retraining, attracting inward investment, sponsorship to encourage partnerships, technology-sharing, leveraging; Fostering an environment comprising industry, academia and clinicians to create active interest groups, a strong lobby to central government, attract the brightest and the best, and encourage non-competitive knowledge sharing across the industry.
