Biotech Alumnus Dr Darrin M Disley, Entrepreneur, Angel Investor and CEO of Horizon Discovery Group Plc will be talking about careers for engineers and scientists.

We live in a golden age of opportunity for researchers of all disciplines to come together and solve the major challenges of the world like ageing populations, big data, clean energy, healthcare costs, economic growth, resource security and sustainability.

In healthcare, as the population of the world ages understanding the genetic “make-up” and thus “health” of nations is essential for effective social engineering and deploying of scarce resources.

Long term healthcare solutions require the tie in of the outputs of DNA sequencing, gene editing, cell, animal and tissue model studies with drug and companion diagnostic development to deliver a pharmacopeia of drugs targeted to the drivers of disease as well as novel gene and cell therapies that revert disease to a normalised state.

A further challenge then comes in linking patient data with diagnosticians and drug reimbursement models to enable a more networked and consumer-driven approach to medicine.

This talk will outline the new healthcare paradigm and will identify opportunities that exist for engineers and scientists in the academic, not-for-profit and industrial sectors.
