The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research (BRC) is holding a series of free events including talks, tours and exhibitions, on the latest advances in research to improve healthcare.
The BRC brings together researchers and clinicians from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Oxford University to improve healthcare through translational research - taking laboratory research into a clinical setting.
Events are taking place at a host of venues including the Oxford Natural History Museum and Oxford’s hospitals. All events are free and open to all.
Highlights include a behind–the-scenes look at state-of-the-art scanning facilities.
There will be talks on the latest research into the heart, cancer, blood, genomic medicine and more, as well as interactive exhibitions explaining how technology is revolutionising healthcare in hospital and at home. 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 to learn about the benefits to patients of the latest developments in healthcare research.”
