Life Sciences

With the relative rapid evolution of a Life Science sector in Swansea Bay driven by the Institute of Life Sciences at Swansea University, strengths have emerged in Medical Engineering; e-health; informatics and neurosciences.

The commercial exploitation of these fields of study is also prevalent with a large number of Life Science businesses exporting products and knowledge across the globe from the Bay.

Future healthcare lies in new technologies which allow early disease intervention, underpinned by new diagnostics and treatments in non-hospital environments e.g. the home, community clinic or GP surgery. The Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) brings together, Clinicians, Life Scientists, and Engineers/Physical Scientists, where they work closely with business to deliver innovations in healthcare.

The forecast increase in spin-out activity from collaboration between businesses in situ and academia demonstrates that the Life Sciences sector across Swansea Bay will no doubt become a world leader
