The Future of Biosciences is a conversation with Professor Philip Nolan which takes place on Thursday, September 22nd 2022 12pm – 1pm.

The conversation is hosted by the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association.

‘Impact 2030’, launched by the Government in May, places research and innovation at the heart of tackling Ireland’s social, economic and environmental challenges. As one of Ireland’s strongest industrial sectors whose lifeblood is innovation, this discussion will ask where Ireland should place our bets – and how the inventors and makers of medicines can contribute to a stronger scientific ecosystem.
