December 22, 2004

Brussels, 21 Dec 2004

An international conference entitled 'Evolution of the life sciences' will be held in Edinburgh, UK, from 23 to 25 February.

As well as addressing the usual areas of uncertainty faced by all sectors, such as which research areas are going to lead to the next big breakthrough, the event will also assess specific issues such as:
- how to bring radically new types of product, such as biotech and genomics drugs or stem cells, to the market;
- the regulatory environment that such products will face;
- the impact of health service purchasing policies and other market-related factors;
- public/stakeholder acceptance of new drugs and medical procedures.

Speakers with international reputations, including industry executives, scientists, policy makers and academics will give their views on how these important trends are evolving, and how they will impact on the future shape of the life science industries.
