Statement from George Freeman MP

This week I was delighted to be asked by the Prime Minister to become the Minister for Life Sciences, working at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Department for Health.
Serving as Government Life Science Advisor from 2011-13, I helped co-ordinate the Prime Minister's Life Science Strategy in 2011. Having the chance to build on this work as a departmental Minister is a huge opportunity to show how our world-leading science base and pioneering work in healthcare technology can make the UK the global hub for medical innovation and patient empowerment. Having also recently served as a UK Trade Envoy, I know the full potential of helping UK companies export these technologies and breakthroughs to the fastest-growing markets around the world.
Life Sciences represents a major opportunity for Britain, both driving economic growth, healthcare technology, medical innovation and patient empowerment. I am delighted as the new Minister for Life Sciences to continue making this vision a reality.
