Come join us to find out what the future of Medicine looks like. You may even win a special 10th anniversary edition Pint of Science glass!

Discover – Define – Design: The art and science of creating health technologies

When you went to college why did you go there? Was it for a job, for the passion of science, following your peers, some of these or none of these?

Professor Prashant Jha is an entrepreneurial academic who has been designing and teaching university programs that blend medicine, engineering, business, and human centred design to enable students find purpose, solve healthcare challenges, and build amazing careers.

In this talk he will share his teaching recipe with real-life examples of creating affordable and affable medical technologies with his students.

Bridging the gap between Women’s health and MedTech

Nitya Dintakurti and Shreya Kalyanasundaram (MSc Students)
In the UK and throughout the world, inequality in healthcare between men and women persists. This systemic problem touches all levels of the healthcare system – from how research is conducted and funded to medical interventions with healthcare providers and outcomes. At Ru Medical, we want to break the barriers that women face by equipping them with innovative medical technologies to provide a better understanding of their own health. 

3D Printing A Human Being

Kawal Rhode (Professor of Biomedical Engineering)
3D printing technology has become widespread in many different areas of life. It can be used to create everyday objects from small jewellery to giant buildings. The technology has become accessible due to lowering costs and the wide range of materials that are available for 3D-printed creations. But can 3D printing be used to print the human body? This talk will explore the technology behind 3D printing and look into how we can use it to print human tissues and organs for a variety of applications, including testing of new healthcare technologies and transplants to replace failing organs.
