The UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering is hosting its second annual Autumn Research Symposium. The day will showcase UCL's healthcare engineering research and some of our main priorities and activities. 

This won't be a traditional symposium format! The event is grouped into sessions around our key values: collaboration, innovation and translation. We are planning an interesting, interactive day of panel discussions, live research demonstrations and patient stories.

We hope to see you there.
