The aim of the HIT Research Festival is to bring together a multidisciplinary audience including scientists, clinicians, industrialists, charities and patient group representatives, to discuss and identify approaches to addressing key global health issues. This festival is an opportunity to develop applied research activities with real impact and to identify key partners to generate strategic funding

Day 1 of the meeting (1 April) includes a series of talks, debates, curated in two keynotes and four thematic sessions, plus exhibitions and opportunities for networking.

Keynote speakers:

  • Prof Amy Herr (University of California Berkeley, USA) - Bioinstrumentation for Quantitative Biology and Medicine
  • Prof Constantin Coussios (University of Oxford) - Turning ideas into technology from organ preservation to drug delivery

Thematic sessions:

  • Future Cancer Healthcare
  • Healthy Ageing
  • Replacing Animal Models
  • Robotics for a Safer World

Poster abstracts may be submitted by the deadline of 28 February.
