Cambridge New Therapeutics Forum (Cam NTF) is launched

Cambridge New Therapeutics Forum (Cam NTF) is a new scientific forum open to all scientists interested in research and development of new therapeutics in Cambridge and the local area, including scientists at the University, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, pharmaceutical companies, biotechs, CROs and not-for-profit organisations.


The purpose of Cambridge New Therapeutics Forum (CamNTF) is to promote interactions between scientists at these organisations in order to improve opportunities for biotechnology research and development.

Starting from 2015 CamNTF will host early-evening meetings open to all scientists interested in research into new therapeutics. These will rotate around different organisations located in the Cambridge biotech cluster. Each two-hour session will begin with two short scientific presentations and will be followed by networking and snacks (6pm-8pm).

Attendance is free but all attendees must register in advance.  Places are limited and early registration will be important to avoid disappointment!
