Technology and biomedicine: a Cambridge showcase

Technology and biomedicine: a Cambridge showcase

A half-day collaborative online symposium and networking event

Date: Monday 27 September 2021 (09.00-14.00 BST)
Venue: Online via Zoom

Co-chairs: Professor Sir Stephen O’Rahilly, Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science and

Professor Roisin Owens, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Cambridge

This was a collaborative event between the University’s Metabolic Network and Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, to showcase how innovative new approaches and technologies from mathematical, computing, engineering, physical and chemical sciences are helping to deliver impact and improve patient care.

The session included a series of short talks from leading investigators followed by a panel discussion and then a number of flash-talks by Cambridge graduate students, post-doctoral and early career researchers, selected from submitted abstracts.

Full programme

40 people took part (including speakers) and we were treated to a range of excellent talks together with three short flash talks. It was an excellent platform to bring different disciplines together with many ‘we must talk’ moments, indicating potential for some collaborative projects in the future, sharing skills, expertise and knowledge. Huge thanks to all the speakers and participants and also the programme committee (below).

Great meeting today bringing physical chemical and computational scientists together with our metabolic community. Many exciting opportunities for future collaborations.

Professor Sir Stephen O’Rahilly
