On Wednesday May 15 we will be showcasing the pioneering research improving healthcare across Oxfordshire’s hospitals and across the NHS…and we hope you will join us.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre is a £100m collaboration between Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Oxford University to accelerate healthcare innovation.
At our annual open day, you can discover the work that is tackling major healthcare challenges including stroke, cancer, diabetes, dementia and heart disease and how that is improving healthcare for you and your family.
As part of the interactive exhibition you will be able to:
- Get a closer look at the pioneering electronic retina as featured on BBC’s One Show and C4’s Bionic Man and meet the team that made it a reality
- Talk to leading researchers about the genetics revolution
- Discover how the iPad and mobile phone are revolutionising healthcare both in the hospital and at home.
- Try your hand at neurosurgery using our jelly brain.
- Find out how you can play a part in world class research
…and much more
We also hope to offer walking tours of some of world-class research facilities we have here at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
The free event runs from 12.30pm to 4.30pm at the West Wing, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
Everyone is welcome and there is no need to register. We look forward to meeting you on the day.
