Which career path will you choose?

Back by popular demand the Bionow Onine Careers Fair returns in Spring 2024 and is designed to help inform university under-graduates, graduates and post-graduates about the vast array of career paths available in Life Sciences.

With opportunities across the Biomedical and Pharmaceutical sectors and beyond, with companies large and small, spin-outs and start-ups, which path will you take?

This event is free to attend for all students of universities that are Bionow members and sponsors as we bring companies from different sections of the Bionow community together to highlight the opportunities and career paths available in the sector.  This is an opportunity for students to come to as much or as little of the event as they wish, sampling a vast array of career paths this sector offers.

Presentations and Panel Discussions from a range of specialisms including:

Drug Discovery, Drug Development, Pharma Manufacturing, Fully Integrated Development, Diagnostics, Medical Technologies, Analytical Services, Data Analytics, Technical Services and Support, Professional Services


If you would like to register for the Careers Fair and you attend one of the Bionow member Universities listed below, please register on the Student Delegate Pass.  If you have any queries about this event please contact Mollie Nolan at

The event will be on Zoom with more information to come!
