George Freeman MP visits life sciences leaders in Cambridge

Jason Mellad, Start Codon CEO and Co-Founder was on of a group of Cambridge-based life science leaders to meet George Freeman, MP and Parliamentary under Secretary of State in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

George Freeman MP, visited the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in Cambridge, to learn how the city is leading innovation in life sciences. As part of the tour, Freeman visited the Genomics Laboratory Hub at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology and The Heart and Lung Research Institute.

As part of visiting The Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre and the Milner Therapeutics Institute, they met Tony Kouzarides and Kathryn Chapman and Jason Mellad, to see first-hand how successful collaboration is enabling Life Sciences to thrive.

Freeman said: “During my lifetime in and around Cambridge I’ve seen the Cambridge science and technology cluster grow into a global powerhouse of innovation in biomedical and digital technologies.

“As UK Science and Innovation Minister, my core mission is to ensure we continue to support this cluster with continued investment in great science and infrastructure for better connectivity to spread opportunities across the Eastern region, and learn the lessons from Cambridge to help grow the other emerging clusters around the whole of the UK.

“Bringing the kind of high-tech jobs and economic prosperity Cambridge has enjoyed to other parts of the UK is key to our Levelling Up commitment, and thanks to the work being done here we have an excellent blueprint to put the infrastructure in place to make that happen. Cambridge has shown what’s possible.

“As we move the UK from a service economy to an innovation economy I look forward to continuing our work with researchers and businesses here to help innovative companies in Cambridge go from strength to strength, while growing similar clusters across the UK.”
