Sintons sponsors major diagnostics event
A major diagnostics conference in the North East is again being supported by law firm Sintons.
The Diagnostics North East Conference 2021 will explore precision diagnostics for precision medicine, and brings together some of the leading names in the field regionally and nationally to share their expertise.
The event, to be held online on October 13, attracts an audience of key professionals working across healthcare in the North East, a region renowned for its world-leading innovation in the sector.
Sintons, independently acknowledged as one of the leading healthcare advisors in the UK, has again committed its support to the event, which will hear from an array of nationally-renowned figures including Sir John Burn, Professor Alistair Burt and Professor Mike Barnes.
Diagnostics North East was established in 2018 to bring together the various research infrastructures, capabilities and resources that support the development, research and innovation of diagnostic technologies into a single body, to achieve greater efficiencies and opportunities to improve patient health.
Its conference, which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, marks a key opportunity for the region to showcase the diagnostic resources and expertise available to support researchers, clinicians, and industry in developing and deploying new and innovative diagnostic technologies.
Amanda Maskery, partner and head of NHS healthcare at Sintons – whose healthcare expertise extends across the entire sector, spanning NHS, life sciences, diagnostics and pharmacies – said Sintons is delighted to add its support to the event.
“The creation of Diagnostics North East has been highly significant in bringing together all aspects involved in diagnostics in the region, creating a powerful voice which can only be of benefit to our world-leading healthcare sector,” she says.
“Its annual conference again promises to be an outstanding event and has become known for the insight and learning opportunities it gives from an array of true leaders in their fields. We are delighted that it has returned for 2021.
“As a leading advisor to the healthcare sector nationally, working with clients from major NHS Trusts through to life science startups, we are very proud of the role we play in supporting and developing healthcare. The opportunities going forward are many, particularly in such a dynamic and innovative region as the North East, and working alongside Diagnostics North East we are very keen to continue to play our role in realising our full potential.”
