The 2022 conference will run across two days on Thursday 8 September-Friday 9 September, including plenary sessions, keynote talks, break-out workshops, poster sessions, dedicated early-career researcher sessions and more.

Prof Vanessa Diaz (UCL Mechanical Engineering) and Prof. Rui Loureiro (UCL Aspire CREATe) the Chair and Co-Chair will host the conference alongside an interdisciplinary team of engineers, clinicians and scientists from across UCL.

Prof Diaz said, "I am honoured and delighted to host the UK’s Biomedical Engineering Community, in an open, friendly and collaborative environment that will showcase our world-class research, savoir faire and entrepreneurship. As Vice-Dean for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, I am also looking forward at making our event inclusive and equitable, which is part of the fundamental ethos of UCL and a key part of what makes UCL Engineering special."

Prof Loureiro said "Over the last decade we have witnessed biomedical technology playing a pivotal role in measurement, assessment and therapy provision. Clinicians, researchers, insurers, politicians and engineers alike desire affordable technology systems that span to clinical and home environment, are easy to use and result in functional gains that carryover to every-day life. I look forward to working with the BioMedEng 2022 organising committee to deliver a conference that promotes the translation of biomedical technologies across fields and its clinical delivery."

Prof Rebecca Shipley, Director of UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering says “UCL Engineering is looking forward to welcome delegates to UCL in 2022. This is an exciting opportunity to showcase the expertise and breadth of our national biomedical community, and to spark fruitful collaborations across institutions.”

There will be more information coming soon for our UCL community on how to get involved in the organisation and development of the conference – watch this space!
