February Update

We've had a wonderful start to the year so far and the future is looking bright for the life sciences sector in Wales.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, the team at MediWales want to share the love. We are collecting stories of how MediWales members have come together to create something special for our new publication, LifeStories.

This is an opportunity for MediWales members to share their news with our network, and showcase their successes and collaborations. Contact Lucinda if you'd like to get involved, and look out for LifeStories, coming out next month.

We have three MediWales events coming up in the next six weeks, all of which are free to attend for members.

We hope to see you there!
