Established through the Bioscience Directors’ Forum of Science City York, and initially sponsored by the University of York’s Research Innovation Office, the new Technology Digests events are open to all.
The first event, SCY Technology Digests: Diagnostics, will take place from 4.30 – 6.00pm on Thursday 4 December in the Department of Biology, University of York.
The key role of diagnostic technologies in industries such as health, food and environment will be discussed, with speakers from local companies offering insight into new developments. Speakers include: David Bunka, Chief Technical Officer at Aptamer Group, Paul Ko Ferrigno, Chief Scientific Officer at Avacta Life Sciences, Ian Eastwood, Managing Director at Eluceda Ltd, John Colyer, Chief Executive Officer at Badrilla Ltd and Chris Danks, Chief Technical Officer of Abingdon Health.
Presentations will be followed by informal drinks, and attendance is free but prior registration is required at http://scy.co.uk/events/scy-technology-digests-diagnostics-0.
Dr John Pillmoor, Bioscience Technology Facility Director in the Department of Biology at York and organiser of the event, said: "The Technology Digest series is a new initiative arising from Science City York's Bioscience Directors' Forum to provide an additional networking opportunity for local companies.
“Running approximately on a quarterly basis, we hope to provide both a useful and stimulating insight and update on key technologies that are critical to bioscience companies as well as to showcase local companies who are leading or involved in these technologies. We want this to be a community-led initiative and ideas for future sessions will be most welcome."
