Life Sciences Sector will Welcome Minister for Life Sciences

May 25 2010

Gordon Brown’s announcement prior to the election that he is minded to appoint a Minister for Life Sciences in the next Parliament is to be applauded and is welcomed by the UK’s four life sciences trade associations - the Association for the British Healthcare Industry, the Association for the British Pharmaceutical Industry, the BioIndustry Association and the British In Vitro Diagnostics Association.

The four associations jointly said:

"The UK life sciences industry applauds Gordon Brown’s plans to create a Minister for the Life Sciences. It is further recognition of the vital role our industry plays in the health of the nation and in its economic well-being and would bolster the work of the Office for Life Sciences. Supporting the UK’s science and innovation base must be a priority for any future Government. The UK must send a clear message to the rest of the world that it is - and is determined to remain - a world leader in the field of life sciences."
