Leading technology and life sciences entrepreneur, Dr Jamie Coleman will be the guest speaker at Opportunity North East’s (ONE) next Life Sciences network meeting on Tuesday 3rd September at the ONE Tech Hub on Schoolhill in Aberdeen.
Founder and chair of CodeBase, the UK’s largest tech incubator, Jamie began his career in Cardiovascular Drug Discovery before setting up his own software companies and going on to help others build their own software businesses. He will be sharing his expertise on the key attributes of a successful life science business from strategy development through to investment to an audience of established and start-up life science businesses, research and academic communities and innovation-focussed medical professionals. Jamie will also address the changing landscape of technology and data analytics in life sciences and their impact on software development, medical devices and biopharmaceuticals.
The event – which will run from 1200 until 1430 and is organised by private sector-led economic development body ONE – is a key element of its ambition to catalyse life science sector growth, an important part of the region’s economy.
Professor Stephen Logan, Chair of ONE’s Life Sciences Board said: “We have a highly talented and globally-recognised life sciences sector in the region that presents huge opportunities for further development. The shared learnings our network can derive from Jamie’s experience are invaluable in helping to shape and deliver a successful and sustainable future for the sector in the North East of Scotland.”
Dr Jamie Coleman added: ‘This is a fascinating moment in the development of the Life Sciences sector where software and data analytics meet drug discovery and development. Our aim is to build hybrid businesses that combine both disciplines in order to transform healthcare. I am delighted to be able to share my experiences in this field with some of the leading lights in Life Sciences in the North East of Scotland and am very much looking forward to the event.”
