Building a Sustainable UK Diagnostic Sector: Meeting the Challenge


Friday 24 September, 2021 - 09:30 - 16:00

Location: University of Warwick Oculus Building / Hybrid (Hosted on Zoom)

About the event:

Fuelled by the new knowledge, investment and innovation demonstrated by the UK diagnostics sector in response to Covid 19, how do we now exploit the commercial, scientific and health opportunities in diagnostics in a post-pandemic world?

This event will bring together key stakeholders from across the NHS, academia, industry and regulatory bodies to explore how we can build on the pandemic testing response to enhance cross-sector collaboration, improve the UK’s infrastructure for the development and implementation of innovative diagnostics, and build workforce capacity.

The morning session will comprise a series of keynote presentations followed by an interactive panel discussion. The afternoon session will focus on opportunities to engage with industry, how these can be developed and sustained to enable us to address public health challenges of the future.
