 What on earth is ‘healthcare engineering’?!

It might seem like a funny old phrase, but what healthcare engineering boils down to is designing and building things that help people live better lives.

- Bionic limbs? Healthcare engineering

- Robots doing surgery? Healthcare engineering

- Virtual reality for pain relief? Yup, healthcare engineering!

Learn about the ways UCL researchers are improving quality of life for people across the globe.

You won’t hear any stuffy jargon or long-winded tangents here. Our researchers have just five minutes to tell you about their wonderful (and sometimes weird) research.

In previous years, audiences have learned:

· What do machine learning and cats have in common?

· How squishy robots can teach kids sign language

· Why do some medicines taste so nasty and how can we make them yummier?

This is a relaxed, friendly event aimed at anyone with an interest in science and health. Even if that doesn’t sound like you, you might be surprised!

Running time 2h 15min inc interval.

This event will be filmed. By purchasing a ticket you consent to being filmed.

Included with you ticket is 1 free drink from the Studio bar.

Portobello Pilsner Diet Coke Coke sparkling or still water soft drinks
