European Health Challenges: The role of imaging technology in addressing key biomedical questions of the future
Stanhope Hotel, Brussels
25th September 2018
16.00 - 18.00
The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York are home to some of the top European Centres in Advanced Imaging and Microscopy studying at a macromolecular level the impact of disease on individual cells, using a wealth of first class equipment to conduct world leading biological research.
This event will be hosted by Professor Dave Petley, Vice-President for Research and Innovation at the University of Sheffield and Mr Andrzej Rys, Director of Medical Products and Innovation, DG Health and Food Safety, European Commission will be part of the panel discussion.
Hear our panel of experts present their cutting edge research on the use of advanced imaging in the design of new medicines for the future. For the first time, imaging at near atomic level produces amazing pictures of cells actively dividing (Dr Peter O’Toole, York), incredible detail of organ damage eg to the lungs (Professor Jim Wild, Sheffield) and investigation of how cells behave when attacked by a virus (Professor Michelle Peckham, Leeds).
There will be an opportunity to ask questions and to comment on and discuss the research and its application to clinical treatment and future medicines. A drinks reception from 1800 will follow the event for networking.
