Shortlisted Nominees Announced for the 2019 Bionow Awards

The Bionow Awards Dinner is a highlight of the life sciences calendar and celebrates the world-class scientists and companies that are driving the life science sector particularly in the North of England.

Delivered by Bionow, an award-winning membership organisation serving the life science sector in the North of England. The winners will be announced during a glittering ceremony hosted by doctor and comedian Dr Phil Hammond on the evening of Thursday 28th November at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa.

With around 1100 life science and healthcare companies and a combined turnover of £11bn, the North of England's life science sector has the breadth of business, depth of expertise and investment in specialist infrastructure that rivals anything that any other UK region can offer and the Bionow Awards recognises this success and achievement.
