CVDHub: Clinicians' Challenge to Engineers in Cardiovascular Health
9:00 am to 12:00 pm, 28 March 2019
This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together engineers and clinicians in cardiovascular health from QMUL’s Cardiovascular Devices Hub (CVDHub), UCL’s Institute of Healthcare Engineering (IHE) and their partner hospitals.
This event is free.

The workshop will focus on identifiable, real challenges that clinicians face that engineering technology and expertise could help to solve.
The first hour will consist of short presentations from clinicians outlining key challenges in heart failure, valve failure, non-invasive imaging and sensing, pacemakers and defibrillators. Participants will then split into multidisciplinary groups to brainstorm and discuss potential engineering applications and solutions.
There will be a real emphasis on supporting promising ideas after the workshop. The day will include an overview of possible funding sources, resources available and routes forward. A small amount of funding will also be available to enable follow-up facilitation meetings for groups and the IHE’s Research and Development Manager will be offering dedicated support with this.
