Engaging with …the Scottish Life Sciences Association Autumn Reception 2017

The Scottish Life Sciences Association held their 2017 Autumn Reception at RBS Business School last week on Thursday, 26th October.

Hosted by Scott Johnstone (CEO of the SLA), the event’s keynote speaker was Kyle Keeney, President and CEO of the Kentucky Life Sciences Council and co-founder of the Turnpike Partnership. Kyle gave us all an enthusiastic overview of the life sciences initiatives they are championing, on making connections within the life sciences community and acting as industry mentors. Great to have access to all these connections via our SLA membership.

I had a great night manning the School of Applied Sciences’ stand along with Dr Claire Garden, Head of Life Sciences.

We made some great contacts and even had a special visit from our colleagues within the School of Health and Social Care, Dean of SHSC, Professor Tracy Humphrey and Bob Wright, SHSC Lead for Enterprise and Innovation.
