Cancer treatment drugs, prophylactic vaccines for infectious diseases, cardiovascular drugs and treatment of diabetic foot ulceration are just some of BioCubaFarma’s main products. They also have a large portfolio of projects in different development stages focused on different fields such as human, animal and plants.

The delegation is interested in seeing the UK capability in R&D, manufacturing and translation as well as looking for strategic partners to help develop, manufacture and market their products internationally.
