UCL/ParisDescartes University Collaborative
The objective of the project is to initiate a UCL – Paris Descartes Collaborative program in Women’s Health. The UCL- Paris Descartes Collaborative will be launched in May 2017 with a symposium involving the two university departments and their affiliated hospital systems. This faculty-led initiative originating in women’s health medicine could expand to other biomedical fields and disciplines in due course. UCL and Paris Descartes present both a great environment for care, research and teaching, with many similarities but also many differences. Students, carers and scientists could all highly benefit from this collaboration. The objective of the Collaborative is therefore to create deep interactions and broader relationship between the two institutions and also to take better advantage of complementary resources. This will be built on seminars, workshops, visits for lectures, joint projects and on exchanges of medical students. Professorships positions could also be created. This project is also supported by the French Embassy in London.

- Research into amniotic fluid stem cells in collaboration with Professor Paolo De Coppi at UCL Institute of Child Health was made specially to mark International Stem Cell Awareness Day, 5 October 2011. The day aims to promote greater understanding about stem cell research, the range of potential applications for disease and injury, and to raise awareness about why funding stem cell research is so vital. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD_V1hqR6SI
