AIIMS is India's number one hospital for research. The hospital is a city in itself with 50,000 daily footfall. The staggering volume and diversity of cases combined with clinical excellence provide incredible potential for collaboration.

IIT-Delhi is renowned for its expertise in robotics, computer science, assistive technology, smart materials and biopharmaceuticals. The strong synergies between the healthcare engineering work being done at UCL and the research at IIT-Delhi provide ripe opportunity for partnerships.
