12 September 2013 -- The BioIndustry Association is delighted to announce that this year's UK Bioscience Forum, taking place on 10 October in central London, is now CPD-certified. This quality mark for the event means that delegates can now use their attendance at the event as self certified continued professional development.

Steve Bates, BIA Chief Executive Officer said:

"Having the BIA UK Bioscience forum CPD-certified now enables bioscience professionals to use their attendance at the event as part of their ongoing professional development and training programme. Just one day provides over seven hours of CPD so it is a time- and cost-efficient way to make sure you are up to date with the latest developments in the sector, while developing your own skills and network"

The outline agenda for the UK Bioscience Forum is now available on the dedicated forum website: It includes an opening keynote presentation by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, and sessions on biologics, intellectual property and communications. By popular demand, the Bioscience Got Talent company showcase is back, this year focusing on recent Biomedical Catalyst winners.

Attendees will also hear about the very latest on tackling antimicrobial resistance in healthcare-associated infections, public private partnerships in translational vaccinology and accelerating vaccine development, along with practical advice for accessing international markets such as India, China and the USA.

BBSRC Innovator of the year competition winner Dr Ryan Donnelly will also present his research on the use of microneedles for transdermal drug delivery and patient monitoring. To close the event there will be a very timely discussion on whether the recent IPO bubble is here to stay or not and a closing keynote presentation by Jim Greenwood, President and CEO, BIO in his first visit to the UK in over five years.

With 300 bioscience professionals expected to attend the event in an easy to reach central London location with speed partnering, and networking, a busy exhibition hall in addition to the packed agenda the UK Bioscience Forum is the autumn event for UK bioscience.

Steve Bates added:

"Last year's forum received fantastic reviews from attendees and this year's event is looking even stronger. If you want to meet the most innovative UK bioscience companies then do join us on 10 October."
