Description

Growing the Cambridge Biomedical campus: New hospitals and organisations accelerating specialist research

NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre Public Open Evening 2019

Talks are between 6.00pm and 7.30pm. Doors open at 5.30pm, networking with speakers and researchers until 8.00pm.

The Biomedical campus continues to expand, with the recently completed Royal Papworth Hospital and Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Research Centre to be joined by a specialist Heart and Lung Research Institute and a new children's hospital. There are also ambitious plans for a specialist cancer research hospital.

Join us for the NIHR Cambridge BRC Open Evening 2019 as we share how the new additions support our world-class research to improve patient care.

Hospitals and research organisations

Researchers in Cambridge are at the forefront of tackling major health challenges such as cancer, paediatric conditions, autoimmune disease, heart and lung disease. Find out how we are turning our discoveries into life-changing treatments for our patients and how local people are supporting and influencing this work.

If you are interested in finding out more about the new developments on the campus and how they support research, this evening is for you.

Light refreshments (tea/coffee and nibbles) are available on arrival and during the exhibition.
