“BJS Biotechnologies is once again delighted to be sponsoring this prestigious prize. It strengthens the already strong bonds between BJS and this outstanding university. Researchers at Brunel University are carrying out enormously important research in the field of biosciences, helping to gain a better understanding of the aging process, and how to detect early forms of aggressive cancers,” said Lewis.
