The work of our Dawes Centre for Future Crime has generated worldwide media coverage (including a recent spot on BBC's Countryfile programme!) over the past year. Our 'policy briefings’ condense the results of our research into short documents that quickly summarise the work. The briefings are prepared with the help of colleagues in the UCL Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP). The following briefings can be downloaded from our website. 


Meet Mariam Elgabry, co founder and director of medtech startup enteromics, but also a UCL PhD researcher between the Dawes Centre and the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering (ACBE).

She is on a mission to build secure smart pills for smart health and is leading the very first Internet-of-Ingestible-ThingsTM  hackathon that BRINGS cybersecurity experts and  medical device regulatory bodies, to think about cyber-bio-security at design stage of medical devices and to inform policy for these smart gut-sensing pills.Her work was been recognized and published by the UK Parliament Joint Committee on National Security.

Watch the video and join Mariam in her vision for prioritising responsible health tech for a more “bio-savvy” public that demands for secure solutions!
