Innovate for Life

AbbVie recently contributed to a series of films explaining how Ireland’s medicines manufacturing industry impacts society and adds value. The Innovate for Life campaign was developed by the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association (IPHA) and highlights innovation right across the lifecycle of a medicine – from discovery and development through to manufacturing and adoption by health services. It explains the benefits the sector delivers for patients, communities and scientific advancement, featuring contributions from scientists, manufacturing staff, doctors and those affected by illness.

AbbVie’s video features contributions from Paul Deering, Editor of the Sligo Champion; John Ward, Managing Director, Ward Automation; Dr Jeremy Bird, Head of the Faculty of Science, Institute of Technology Sligo; and Matt Kavanagh, Drug Product Operations Supervisor at AbbVie’s Manorhamilton Road site in Sligo (pictured above). They describe the local impact of globally significant innovation that’s happening outside of traditional Dublin and Cork hubs and explain why the northwest is a particularly great place to live and work.
