Uniting the two worlds of industry and academia to boost advances in healthcare

Book your free place at our showcase event for the new IAX (Industry & Academia Exchange programme) and explore the future of healthcare with a leading expert. Thanks to £296K funding from the Medical Research Council’s Proximity to Discovery scheme, the IAX programme will expose University researchers to the world of industry and will bring industry colleagues in to the University environment to see how our research can align with their healthcare technology or therapeutic developments.

This fast-paced day will consist of a series of snapshot presentations, showcasing the experiences from academics who have worked across the globe; it will also set aside time for you to generate collaborative ideas in a speed networking environment.

The day will feature our exclusive guest speaker, Jo Pisana, Pharmaceutical and Life Science Consulting Leader at PWC. Jo will present a futuristic view of healthcare, sharing insights into future global and science trends and exploring how we can take advantage of them. The overall aim is to help you build engagement opportunities and identify your future research project ideas.

The event takes place on Wednesday 16 May at Winstanley House, which is set in 168 acres of picturesque parkland, just outside Leicester.

Registering your attendance is essential; look at the website for more information and to book your place.
