2014 – SEPTEMBER: CBMNet 1st Annual Meeting

9-10 September | Sheffield, UK


Over 100 academics, knowledge exchange professionals and industrialists travelled to The University of Sheffield to attend our pioneering event designed to boost collaboration and innovation. The event kicked off with presentations from GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies and Green Biologics on the ‘Grand Challenges in Crossing Biological Membranes’, followed by discussions on research collaboration opportunities in these areas. This was then followed by a conference dinner where more networking took place and exciting novel research ideas developed. The second day saw projects develop into applications for Proof-of-Concept funding.

“Thank you very much for organising this first meeting of CBMNet. It was fun, and a really useful way to establish new contacts. Hope to see you again in the near future.”

Hendrik W. Van Veen, University of Cambridge

”A Great meeting from our perspective; made several contacts which have the promise of worthwhile projects.”
