Talks tastier than what's in your local chippy! Learn how Zebrafish are essential to ground breaking research, and how microchips lined with human cells are battering down the barriers to a future of fully-personalised medicine.

We'll also be celebrating International Clinical Trial Day with a talk about how doctors and scientists worked together to develop a new, safer pelvic mesh material, and a mock clinical trial on the effects of beer!

At the heart of zebrafish

Elisabeth Kugler (Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease (IICD))
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of deaths worldwide, but did you know that we can study processes of normal blood vessel development and where things go wrong in zebrafish? Come and join us to find out how we use state-of-the-art microscopy and image analysis to study vascular development in these unassuming creatures and get lost in the microscopic world of fish vessels!

Organs on chips: the future of personalised medicine

Claudia Beaurivage (Biomedical Science)
Every human is fundamentally unique. The way we respond to drugs is no different; our genes will shape the way we respond to a medication. Imagine a future where the doctor could prescribe you, from the very beginning, the medicine that suits you best, avoiding long trial-error cycles and the side effects associated. Sounds impossible? With Organs-on-Chips, this idea is closer to us than ever! Come and learn about how Organs-on-Chips might be the next big breakthrough in medicine.

Chewing the fat: medical innovation through collaboration

Dr Emma Mironska (Urology)
A discussion on the importance of collaboration between clinicians and researchers in driving healthcare innovation. We will explore issues surrounding the use of synthetic mesh for pelvic floor repair and how we are working towards alternatives to mesh using fat to stimulate the body’s own healing processes.
