(GLASGOW)

It was a big night for the biotechnology industry at last night’s Global Game Changers awards in Glasgow.

There was success for 3fbio in the circular economy category, an award which was presented by Roger Kilburn, CEO of the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC). And biotech entrepreneur, James McIlroy, picked up the young pioneers gong. His company, EnteroBiotix, is working to prevent and treat diseases by unlocking the potential of the body’s own micro-organisms by using healthy donor bacteria to fight infection.

The awards, launched earlier this year by Innovators Magazine and the Herald Scotland, were hosted at the Glasgow Science Centre and welcomed over 200 people to an event which recognises the important role the innovation economy is playing in the quest for a more sustainable world.
