NIHR Colorectal Therapies HTC Midlands Regional Spoke Launch Meeting
Thursday, 23 April 2015 from 09:30 to 17:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We are looking for innovative and creative Scientists and Engineers, Clinicians, Industrial partners and Patients to collaborate in developing technological solutions to address unmet clinical needs.
The Colorectal Therapies Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC) is a national centre of expertise for the development of technologies in the area of colorectal disease. The focus of the HTC is minimally invasive therapies for disease and translating scientific innovation in engineering, nanotechnology and biosensing into clinical application.
This exciting, FREE event is to enable the next steps to be taken in identifying novel solutions to a series of previously identified clinical needs which include the following
Next generation ‘intelligent’ instruments
Enhancement and monitoring of postoperative surgery
Rapid early detection of disease, including ‘real time’ bedside diagnostics
Prevention and early detection of leaks associated with post colorectal surgery
The workshop will provide an opportunity for clinicians, scientists, engineers and industry partners already involved in device technologies, or with an interest in applying existing technologies to new problems, to work with the HTC to accelerate new science into clinical application.
