In January 2018 the NIHR Colorectal Therapies Healthcare Technologies Co-operative will become the NIHR Surgical MedTech Co-operative.
The new Surgical MedTech Co-operative will build a new technology network, adding vascular and hepatopancreaticobiliary surgery to its colorectal theme. These areas of surgery all face substantial challenges, with many people suffering from diseases that will benefit from technological innovation. The Surgical MedTech Co-operative will undertake a variety of activities to identify new areas in need of innovation, support research to address clinical problems, and provide a resource for evaluating new surgical technologies within the wider context of the NHS.
The event will consist of talks from our clinical leads, and our supporting academic work streams which are pathology, clinical trials, health economics, physics & engineering and business & commercialisation. Come and find out what the new Surgical MedTech Co-operative is all about and discuss potential collaborations with colleagues.
The event will take place on Friday 23 February, starting at 12:30 ending at 18:00 with networking and a light buffet from 18:00 – 20:00.
The venue is fully accessible with a lift to all levels, disabled toilet facilities and disabled parking nearby.
