As CEO of the UK BioIndustry Association, Steve Bates works closely with industry and government and, by 2025, he wants the UK to become home to the third biggest global biotech cluster, as he explains to LSIPR.
From working as senior director at Genzyme to advising the UK government, Steve Bates has had a varied career, and he’s certainly no stranger to influencing public policy.
Since 2012, he’s settled into the role of CEO of the UK BioIndustry Association (BIA), a trade body founded more than 20 years ago at the infancy of biotechnology.
Bates has been involved in major BIA campaigns for improved access to finance, the extension of the UK Biomedical Catalyst (BMC), anti-microbial resistance and the opportunity the sector presents to long-term investors.
