Are you an academic interested in finding out how your knowledge can be used to solve industry challenges? Would you like to widen your network? Meet potential collaborators / future employees? Gain insights into relevant funding schemes? If you answer YES to any of the above, now is the time to register for the AIMday in Healthy Ageing.

Networking events, like AIMdays, are one of the ways in which we bring together innovative companies and world-leading academics.

The University of Oxford, together with the UK SPINE Knowledge Exchange, will be hosting an AIMday in Healthy Ageing on Wednesday 9 October 2019 at Blavatnik School of Government. This event will bring together industry with academia to discuss the healthcare challenges associated with ageing. The UK Spine initiative aims to accelerate innovations in ageing and the AIMday will draw on expertise from all the UK Spine’s partners: the University of Oxford, the University of Dundee, the University of Birmingham, the Medicines Discovery Catapult and the Francis Crick Institute.

FREE registration for academics is now open and closes on Friday 27 September (advance registration is essential).

A range of companies including Five Alarm Bio, Isansys, Kemuri, Shift Bioscience (& more) are registered to attend the event and it will be a fantastic opportunity for researchers looking to network with industry and discuss relevant questions.
