Event details

This free event will be held in Garden Court on 29th April, and focusses on Biomedical Engineering, Science and Technology: ‘BEST Research for Human Health’. It’s open to all, but we would particularly like to encourage PhD students and postdocs to submit an abstract and to register for this conference, it’s a brilliant place to learn about industry and to get career advice. And it’s fine to recycle an abstract to present research to the attending industry experts.

Register at:
