NIHR Surgical Medtech Co-operative National Meeting
November 7 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The NIHR Surgical Med Tech Co-operative supports the development of medical technologies in the fields of colorectal, vascular and hepatopancreaticobiliary (liver, gall bladder and pancreas/HPB) surgery to improve healthcare and quality of life for patients. They are creating a nationwide network of clinicians, engineers, scientists, industry and patients to identify new areas in need of innovation, support research to address these clinical problems, and provide a resource for evaluating new surgical technologies within the NHS, helping them to move into clinical practice. They provide seed corn funding to kick start research that can turn research ideas into reality, and their Surgical Technology Testbed provides industry with rapid, but affordable, clinical evaluation and adoption.
Their National Meeting is part of a series of events they run which aim to bring together partners from different fields to share expertise and develop new ideas.
Registration is free.
