Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Audience in Conference Centre


The Institute aims to maximise the impact of its research through Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation (KEC) in order to translate research into action for social and economic benefit.
The KEC Programme promotes scientific exchange with various groups through collaborative research activities, events and conferences as well as other mechanisms such as training and continued professional development. Our goal is to deliver impact by making our science and expertise available to academics, industry, policy makers, charities and other interested parties.
