research and innovation showcase

Earlier this month, an exciting showcase of biomedical research took place in John Dalton, providing an opportunity for industry and clinicians to engage with leading academics and learn of opportunities to develop mutually beneficial collaborations with Manchester Met.

Participants gave excellent feedback saying, for example, that they were “very impressed” and that they liked the attitude that the University is “open for business”.

The agenda focused on the Centre for Biomedicine’s expertise in image processing, musculoskeletal science, microbiology, nutrition, vascular and cardiovascular pathology, pharmaceutical chemistry, electrochemical sensors and bioengineering.

Professor Mark Slevin, Director of the Centre for Biomedicine, said, “This event was an excellent opportunity to showcase our world-class research.

“We know we need to translate our research into products and services that will result in significant benefits for people’s health. And to do that, we need industry.

“It was fabulous to host and speak with so many well-informed and interesting people from companies and organisations across the biomedical sector.

“I look forward to seeing the great conversations that were started here flourish into productive collaborations.”
