Life Sciences Cambridge

The life sciences industry represents one of the most important economic sectors worldwide. The sector applies biology and related technologies to improve human health and includes biopharmaceuticals, medical technology, genomics, diagnostics and digital health. The life sciences sector is at an inflection point for disruptive change.

To prepare for the future and remain relevant in the ever-evolving business landscape, biopharma and medical technology organisations will be looking for new ways to create value and respond to unmet medical need in a rapidly involving world. A new generation of management is needed to drive this change.


Cambridge has a long history of world‑leading life sciences research and development in the UK and it is a major area of focus to ensure that promising health and life sciences companies can reach their fully potential.


The Life Sciences Industrial Strategy set out a vision to deliver future growth for the sector and highlighted opportunities for the UK to build on its strengths in order to remain globally competitive.
