The event will provide a forum to explore how healthcare engineering developments in imaging, medical devices, AI and computational modelling, biomaterials, cell therapy and robotics, amongst others, can contribute to fundamental and translational research in ophthalmology, with eventual impact in clinical practice and patient care.

There will be the opportunity to sign up to a tour of the IoO before the workshop. Limited places are available so please do register an expression of interest for this tour by emailing healthcare-eng@ucl.ac.uk.

Provisional agenda:

13:00 – 14:00: Lunch & optional tour of Institute of Ophthalmology

14:00 – 17:00

- Introduction

- ‘Elevator pitches’

- Interdisciplinary roundtable discussions

17:00 – 18:00: Drinks and networking

Following the event, a fully-funded IHE-IoO PhD studentship will be made available. The application process for this will be discussed during the workshop. There will be support made available for projects arising out of this workshop to move forward, including facilitation from the IHE’s R&D Manager.
