BHP's next capital project is Birmingham Life Sciences Park, which will enable productive interactions between clinicians, academics, industry and patients to accelerate the field of personalised, precision medicine.
John has a wealth of experience from a career in academia researching Physiology first in the UK and in the United States, to a number of strategic positions in the professional biomedical sector at the research charity, The Wellcome Trust, and the Academy of Medical Sciences. these roles encompassed policy communication regarding major government reviews, launching strategic initiatives as well as grant development and a strategic framework refresh of the Academy of Medical Sciences.
John's broad range of experience and insight developed over his extensive career in the biomedical sector is of great benefit to the partnership. Working with the Board and Executive, he coordinates the work of BHP on a day to day basis, managing the relationships with and between the partners, new and existing stakeholders and industry partnerships. Alongside this John plays a central role in creating and developing the BHP business plan and delivering the strategic objectives set by the Board.
