Following on from the London Carrots NightWalk last weekend, this week’s video features Michele Acton, CEO of the BIA’s charity partner for 2014, Fight for Sight.

Michele will be speaking at our UK Bioscience Forum on 7 October to tell the story of ‘Helping Tommy – finding a treatment for Choroideremia’, alongside Dr Chris Hollowood from Syncona Partners, Dr Melanie Lee from NightstaRx, and Emma Salisbury – Tommy’s mum.

Join us there to hear how the responsibility for medicine development is spread across individuals and sectors, right from the passion and dedication of fundraisers affected by a condition, through charity funded research, to public sector funding and commercial investment.
