At this year's successful BioWales event, which attracted more than 500 visitors over 2 days, Keith Harding announced that a multi million pound national centre of excellence in wound prevention and treatment is to be created in Wales.
The Welsh Wound Innovation Centre will have a commercial focus as well as delivering a range of clinical research and knowledge transfer services to both NHS and commercial customers. The full article can be found here.
BioWales was also the platform for the launch of Health Research Wales. Health Research Wales provides companies wishing to undertake clinical trials and product evaluations in Wales with a resource for information and support. Further information and their contact details can be found here.
The spring edition of MediWales' The Review magazine was a BioWales special, incorporating the official brochure for the conference. A digitised copy can be found here.
Finally, we would like to welcome and introduce Lucinda, MediWales' new Events & Communications Executive. Her background lies in corporate finance, business development, event management and external relations.
