Global Health Sciences Leaders: Almac Group & Penn Medicine – Influencing the Future of Immune Health

Tuesday, June 7, 2022
5:30 – 7:30 pm EST

The Mütter Museum at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia
19 S. 22nd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103

You are invited to an exclusive symposium to recognize global health and life sciences leaders in our region. The groundbreaking work taking place in Greater Philadelphia is shaping the future of healthcare, specifically immune health, and impacting the world’s ability to respond better and more efficiently to subsequent global health crises. The current pandemic demonstrated the successful international collaboration between the public and private sectors, resulting in extraordinary innovations and the unprecedented pace of the scientific response.

Speakers will address ways in which research and development, new technologies, clinical trials, and service providers joined forces to expedite COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, and how certain processes can be improved to enhance future responsiveness. The discussion will also extend to how today’s groundbreaking science has opened new advances and possibilities for improved patient treatments and outcomes—with a look at what our panelists are doing, and can do in the future, to accelerate treatments to patients.


The United Kingdom and the United States have a special bond. The countries closely collaborate across many sectors, including medical research, healthcare and innovative therapeutic technologies. The two nations’ governments support this rapidly developing industry and the tools needed to stay ahead of the curve.

Critically important questions for humankind’s wellbeing and survival will be addressed during this interactive seminar:

  • What is “immune health” and how is our understanding of the immune system impacting the future of prevention and treatment?
  • How can past, present and future research and development help fight and cure diseases?

Our region boasts centuries of revolutionary medical research and clinical trials for important lifesaving technologies. Almac Group and Penn Medicine are leading the charge in developing treatments and cures that are being tested, delivered, and implemented all over the world.

These global health and life sciences innovators will share their unique and incredible journeys throughout the ages, and will discuss what we can expect in the coming years.

There will be an opportunity to network outdoors with food and beverage following the dynamic dialogue about this fascinating and important topic.
