Last week I had the pleasure of officially opening the new Anglia DNA laboratory. Anglia DNA is a perfect example of the potential of Norfolk’s world class science base to help create the products, businesses and jobs of tomorrow. The laboratory will offer rapid screening for specialised paternity tests and DNA tests. I know from my work on the board of the NRP ‘Iceni’ Start-up Fund how fast growing business like this can be, and having raised over £500,000, with plans for additional investment and growth and overseas exports, Anglia DNA shows how ‘the appliance of science’ can drive pioneering new products and services.
Anglia’s successful expansion on the Norwich Research Park is a tribute to the potential of the NRP to not just contribute to, but lead, a sustainable economic recovery in the UK. That's why I am determined to continue my work in Parliament highlighting the importance of the NRP and Norfolk’s science base to our future economic prosperity.
