BioMed Conference to explore future of health

Third annual event begins this morning in Douglas

Delegates from around the world are descending upon the Claremont Hotel in Douglas for the Manx BioMed Conference, which kicked off at 9 o'clock this morning.

The third annual Manx BioMed conference will see around 120 delegates meet in Douglas to discuss the future of cutting-edge healthcare solutions.

Remote access to medical treatment, smart tech that assists patients day-to-day, and powerful computer-assisted drug testing are just some of the items on the menu.

Representatives are flocking from government, the public sector, the science and engineering industries, and even billion-dollar corporations - with the intention of networking and finding out what the Isle of Man has to offer the industry.
