QMUL, SEHTA and the GLA would like to invite you to come along to the university, to meet leading academics involved in inter-disciplinary biomedical research aiming to transform health and wellbeing, inequalities and patient care across the UK and beyond. 

QMUL has excellence in the fields of genomics, bioengineering, robotics, imaging, digital health (computational biology, artificial intelligence) and experimental medicine, which are applied to drive innovative research in precision medicine and improve patient care.

After presentations from some of QMUL’s leading academics, there is a “Meet the Academics” session where attendees can have a 1:1 conversation with the academic(s) and their department colleagues to explore collaboration possibilities – bookable upon registration.

This event is being organised jointly by SEHTA & QMUL and is part of the MedTech London programme which is supported by the GLA.
