It was my great pleasure to present as part of the Worcestershire Innovation Network at their WINN Wednesday event on the 22nd of November, showcasing the best in innovation across Worcestershire.

This included a local company which makes artificial kneecaps and hips, an insight into the building of genomics studies of patients with rare diseases and cancers, an update on the appeal to get a state-of-the-art surgical robot for removal of prostate tumors (reducing discomfort, scarring and hospital stay post-operation). Jess Antley, head of WINN, also gave an update on a new shared space/collaboration venue for technical and creative start-ups within the county which will go live in early 2018. This is The Kiln, in the center of Worcester.

It was heartening to see the amount of innovation within the county, and feeling that we as a company contribute in our own small way to this.

I presented on how Malvern Panalytical technology is used within the pharmaceutical industry, showing how we can allow companies to select the right product or formulation for their process, quickly rejecting the ones that won’t work. Too much time and money is spent on drug candidates that will never make it through clinical trials, and the solutions we can give our customers to enable them to fund the right products first time will help the pharmaceutical industry become a much more effective place.
