Q: Can you share insights into the work happening in the area of oncology?

Mr Jon Mowles: Government sponsored organizations encourage the uptake of clinical trials. Indian companies want to come to the UK and collaborate with these organizations.

Also, now we are witnessing a successful track record of recruiting patients for clinical trials. We have more patients now in the area of oncology clinical trials in the UK than anywhere else in Europe.

Q: About a million new cancer cases are reported in India every year. How can the UK oncology companies leverage this and create mutual benefits to both India and the UK?
