Leading researchers will be on hand to talk about the latest developments in biomedical informatics and technology, surgical innovations, and translational physiology. Visitors can also try their hand at interactive exhibitions to discover how technology is revolutionising healthcare both in the hospital and at home. There will also be a series of talks on innovative technology for healthcare given by University and Trust speakers.
Vasiliki Kiparoglou, Head of Operations, NIHR Oxford BRC said:
“Oxford has long been at the forefront of medical research, whether it is the genetic and molecular basis of disease, the latest advances in neuroscience, or clinical studies in cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other conditions. This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to learn about the benefits to patients of the latest developments in healthcare research.”
Exhibits include the first results in gene trails for inherited blindness, pioneering lung imaging techniques that may improve diagnosis and treatment, personalised mobile health for heart failure, prediction of physiological patterns in pregnancy and much more.
“Innovation in healthcare research” is part of the NIHR Oxford BRC Open Weeks programme of talks, tours and exhibitions, which are taking place during “Oxfordshire Science Festival” and “British Science Week”
