PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR 19th ANNUAL LIFESCIENCES BC AWARDS
This year’s theme, Translating Insights into Action, will consider the companies, organizations, individuals and institutions that have successfully taken ideas and brought those innovations to life. Successfully aligning and implementing the many research functions and corporate components that disrupt the usual and well-worn, by creating, developing or advancing new therapeutic solutions in clinical and translational medical science.
Innovations can cover the spectrum of disease areas, including cancer, infectious diseases, neurology, ophthalmology, cardiovascular, nanotechnology, and beyond. Many of them involve rare or neglected diseases that afflict either very small populations or people in developing countries. It is hard and relentless work that takes dogged perseverance to capture discovery from bench to bedside.
We are fortunate to have a life science ecosystem that bridges academia and a thriving research & development bionetworks, including world-class healthcare facilities, distinguished health & medical foundations, and renowned centres of excellence that are supportive of translation and commercializing innovation in healthcare.
