London! We’re coming for you! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
Join us for free at our third Meetup on October 24th and meet some of the coolest Biotech people in London, the life science hub of the United Kingdom! Spaces are filling up fast so get in quick!
As you may have heard (and if you haven’t, prepare yourself for some exciting news), Labiotech has been moving around organizing Meetups in different European countries. The aim is to connect the super cool biotech community and to have some great chats over beer 😉 This month we are heading to London, home of Big Ben, David Beckham and fish and chips. We have been incredibly lucky to find some really interesting and inspiring speakers for our fireside chats.
Who will be speaking?
1. Kevin Johnson – co-founder & partner at Medicxi
Kevin is from the Welsh town of Holyhead and has spent his life doing some pretty amazing stuff! Currently, Kevin is a board member of Capella Bioscience and is the chairman of Levicept Ltd., Apcintex and Crescendo Biologics. He is also a board member of several other startups. What a busy guy! Kevin has in the past been involved with Cambridge Antibody Technology (CAT) discovering human antibodies, and Index Ventures where he was a partner for 12 years.
