This unique programme is developing leaders of the future who can create collaborations across academia, industry, the NHS and government to drive innovation. Davide discussed what he has learned on the FLIER programme and how he is working between academia and biotech.

“Several diseases where cell therapy is beginning to prove effective are hampered by the titanic challenges of producing enough cells. The work we do in extends a technology that enables us to produce human specific cell types at scale and this will bring some of these new treatments to fruition. The work at King’s builds new ways of observing and measuring cell behaviour.”
