Great networking, learning opportunities at animal health conference
Chief Scientific Officer Prof. Jacqui Matthews and our Commercial Manager Dr Richard Freeman attended the Animal Health Innovation Europe conference this week, and were full of praise for all the work the organisers did, and for all the companies and contacts that they came across at the event.
From a learning point of view, there are some great talks about partnership and sustainability, some of the key underpinnings of our business at Roslin Tech (we directly contribute to six of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals). We were also delighted to join in some roundtables discussing the use of CRISPR technology, a method of gene engineering, animal health and sustainability in livestock production.
Most importantly at any event, it allowed us to reach out to a wide group of individuals and companies, in this case talking about the potential of our induced pluripotent stem cell technology. Recently we have made significant progress in growing various canine cells, which can be used we envisage in treatments for cancers, diabetes and arthritis. We have already joined with companies to progress some of these projects, but we are always on the lookout for more partners to help us bring our advanced stem cell innovations to market.
If we didn’t manage to catch you at the event, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via the various routes on our website or email@example.com.
See you (in person) soon we hope!
