A Medical Innovation Summit

Ignite is a summit with a difference. By bringing together leaders in medical innovation to challenge each other, learn from other sectors and develop new ways of thinking and working, we will change the future of medical innovation and accelerate progress.

Ignite comprises of immersion experiences, debates, networking and reflective discussions. Debates aim to give a 360-degree view of medical innovation reflecting on provocative questions.

Ignite is a collaboration between the Collaboration for the Advancement of Sustainable Medical Innovation (CASMI) and the NIHR biomedical research centre at UCLH. As such Ignite alumni automatically become CASMI fellows. This allows us to bring together a broad range of academic disciplines and offers an attractive opportunity for further engagement with colleagues within related fields of work and interest.

Participants will:

  • Be senior scientists (group leaders) from academia and industry;
  • Have existing research expertise in any area of medical innovation;
  • Have demonstrable interest in driving change in medical innovation.
