The Road to Superpower Status: The UK as a hotbed for clinical trials

2nd October 2023

14:00 – 15:00

Exchange 1, Manchester Central

While the UK is considered a world leader at science and innovation, later stage industry clinical trials to develop new medicines and vaccines, are becoming increasingly scarce. Join us as we discuss how to reverse the trend on clinical trials and explore if the UK can indeed become a science and technology superpower. The Health and Care Forum is organised by Total Politics and this fringe is facilitated by UCB.
