A UK centre of excellence for training and innovation for the biosciences and healthcare sector
I work at the National Horizons Centre to lower the cost of manufacturing medicines and bring them to you faster, safer and cheaper.
Together with our partners, we pride ourselves on discovering diseases earlier, developing novel treatments and delivering life-saving medicines quicker, safer and more affordably. With specialisms in disease-specific research, biomanufacturing and biotechnology and digital analytics and machine learning, we work in an agile way to advance biosciences and healthcare research.
We care about the future of the industry, which is why we train the workforce in cutting edge technologies, aligning closely with our partners to address the technical and digital skills needs of the sector.
Collaboration is the key to the success for the UK bioindustry and we see opportunities to work in partnership with the NHC to support the economic and green recovery by providing a highly-skilled workforce to the UK’s bioindustry.
We were given a unique opportunity to locate our company at the NHC, through their co-creation spaces, to conduct research in biomedical science and to provide the translational applications for our projects. From the very beginning we have found the centre’s infrastructure and its modern facilities truly excellent, ranging from purpose-built life science laboratories to world-class analytical equipment and bioinformatics. The unique opportunity to be co-located with world class academics has led to several successful collaborative research projects.
We have been astounded by the facilities within the NHC and the expertise offered through their staff. They have shown considerable ambition and commitment to develop future healthcare innovations. Our partnership will allow the DTVRA to support our clinical staff to explore new ideas using the NHC’s skills, expertise and facilities, and develop these ideas into successful grants and subsequent research projects.”
The NHC’s collaborative approach to upskilling across the Biosciences sector is impressive. Pharmaron Gene Therapy are delighted to engage with the NHC through the Skills and Technical Advisory Group to support the ongoing evolution of the CPD programmes. Their cutting edge facilities and tailored training courses play an integral part of strengthening careers within the Biomanufacturing and Advanced Therapies space.
