Nottingham, UK: 14 May 2014. The Scientific Laboratory Show & Conference, East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham

Leading biomedical scientist and Director of MediCity David Browning is confirmed as headline speaker at The Scientific Laboratory Show & Conference to be held in Nottingham on 14 May this year. Hosted by Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) and organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the biennial event is expected to draw over 1,000 UK and overseas delegates interested in laboratory technology, logistics, safety, project management and commercialisation. The Conference will focus on the latest developments in Innovation and Technology and will feature a full day of talks, interactive sessions and one to one specialist guidance on health and safety issues in laboratories. Full event and booking details are available on the website www.scientificlaboratoryshow.com.

With more than 30 years applied healthcare experience as a biomedical scientist, David Browning is expert in developing and bringing innovative technologies to market. In his presentation he will describe how he led the team at Oxonica Healthcare Limited to patent a revolutionary new UV filter called Optisol™ which became available on shelves as an active ingredient of Boots Soltan Facial Sun Defence Cream.

Both SLS and the Royal Society of Chemistry have visited MediCity, the health, beauty and wellness innovation hub in Nottingham and recognise the valuable contribution David will make to the conference agenda. MediCity is a collaboration between Boots, the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer and BioCity, the UK’s leading life sciences incubation company and offers fully serviced office and laboratory space for innovators in consumer healthcare, medical technology, diagnostics and beauty products.

Peter Lister, Operations Director at SLS says: “We are extremely fortunate in having David confirmed as one of our top speakers. Nottingham’s history in drug discovery and development is now the backdrop for exciting new business incubation ventures such as MediCity and BioCity. At SLS we are proud to play our part of this growing sector by welcoming delegates yet again to our Show & Conference in May.”

Aurora Antemir, industry programme manager at the Royal Society of Chemistry says: “We are proud to be showcasing MediCity as part of the SLS conference programme, as well as the heritage of Nottingham as a centre of scientific innovation. The MediCity partnership is a great example of what large companies like Boots can do to support innovation and small businesses. This is close to our hearts as we put small companies at the centre of our industry activities through a new dedicated programme called Enterprise Plus, which provides micro, small and medium-sized companies with vital information on funding opportunities and scientific developments as well as access to business expertise and relevant networks. We are very much looking forward to an excellent event in May."

The Laboratory Show & Conference is in part sponsored by Thermo Scientific and marks the launch of the 2014 SLS Catalogue when manufacturers and suppliers have access to SLS sales personnel for training and product awareness. An invitation-only Gala Dinner at The Orchard Hotel on 13th May is followed by the Conference which is open to both customers of SLS and visitors.
