We would like to invite you to attend a Joint UCL & Discoveries Centre for Regenerative & Precision Medicine Workshop, which will be taking place on Tuesday 18 June 2019 from 10.00am at the Eastman Dental Institute, 256 Gray’s Inn Road, London, WC1X 8LD.

The workshop aims to showcase the work of the UCL and Portuguese community in the fields of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine with a view to fostering closer ties and facilitating collaborations. The programme will cover research advances as well as highlighting key opportunities and technological challenges that need to be addressed to fulfil the potential of regenerative medicine applied to cardiovascular disease.

The workshop will comprise of oral presentations from researchers at UCL as well as the Discoveries Centre partner universities and will provide a great opportunity to network with fellow researchers and clinicians. The workshop will conclude with a networking lunch.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under grant agreement No 739572
