Citylabs Lounge: Introducing Chiesi

  • Citylabs 1.0 Nelson Street Manchester, England, M13 9WP United Kingdom (map)

Citylabs Lounge is a quarterly networking event for clinicians, academics and healthcare businesses. These events give a valuable opportunity for people working in the healthcare and life science sector to engage with prospective clients and customers, as well as discuss some of the most topical issues of the day.

The exciting role that life sciences and the healthcare sector play in the UK economy is vitally important. Successfully navigating the heavy regulations at International, national and local levels is not for the faint hearted and is just one area where our speaker has an established track record.

Navigating the future

This informative event is essential for anyone undertaking the development and deployment of newer technologies and their use in orphan disease areas.

Dr Diego Ardigo is an expert in this arena, having played a key role in the regulatory negotiations for both Europe’s first approved gene therapy and the first licensed stem cell therapy. Dr Diego Ardigo also has the distinction of playing a lead role in the team that won the prestigious UK Prix Galien orphan drug award in 2016.

His talk will explore the regulatory journey from the very earliest stages through to the essentials and the pitfalls every company should know about. His insights into the challenges facing any organisation hoping to succeed in the life sciences and new technologies arena are invaluable.
