Posted on July 26, 2011 by


Last week, George Freeman MP became a the new Life Sciences Adviser. He will advise David Willetts, who is Minister for Universities and Science, on the economic impact of life sciences in the UK.

George Freeman has a background in biomedical research so he’s a bit of a pro on the life sciences sector. He’s going to be working alongside Chris Brinsmead, who is the Government’s Life Sciences Business Adviser and works cross-departmentally, advising ministers in both the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) and the Department of Health.

The Office for Life Sciences also has a new head, Christine Bloor.
