Boost for Island's bio-med cluster

 

Organisers of a conference for the bio-medicine industry hope it will encourage more firms to locate in the Isle of Man and join the growing Manx bio-med business cluster.

Next month's event will promote the Island as an ideal base for fledgling or niche firms with developed products or techniques, ready to take the next step into the market.
