The Industry Insights Seminar Series is hosted by the Business Partnerships Office and sponsored by the BioEscalator.

  • First Tuesday of every month
  • 12.00 -1.00 pm 
  • In person and via Zoom
  • Networking & 1:1 meeting opportunities

Selected industry speakers provide seminars that are scientific in nature, across a range of medical or health topics.  Speakers are encouraged to bring along colleagues providing the opportunity for Oxford scientists to attend a scientific seminar of interest and also to network with industry scientists. One to one meetings can be facilitated upon request.  Seminars are suitable for all scientists with some knowledge or interest in each topic area, from PhD students to PIs.  Although mostly aimed at an academic audience, those located in the BioEscalator and Wood Centre, as well as local spinouts, are welcome to attend. 

Please contact Sheena Lee if you have any questions or have an industry partner you would like to invite to speak

Title: Natural Cycles: Revolutionising research in Women's Health

Natural Cycles is an app powered by an algorithm that measures basal body temperature. 

The app can be used for research studies to determine fertility status, measure anovulation, irregular cycles, miscarriage, libido, ovulation status in PCOS, for pandemic stress and to determine Covid vaccine effects on menstrual cycles.

Temperatures are measured with the NC° thermometer, which are entered into the app and the algorithm does the work.
