School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences Research and Innovation Showcase

20th April 2016, 09:15 to 16:00, Calman Learning Centre, Durham University

Location: Calman Learning Centre, Durham University

This FREE one day meeting is an opportunity for industry to engage with leading academics and learn of opportunities to develop mutually beneficial collaborative links.

The School of Biomedical and Biological Sciences (SBBS) at Durham University, sits at the heart of the N8 Bio-Economy in the North East of England and this event will showcase to industry the opportunities for collaboration in the growth areas of Biologics (particularly post-translational protein modifications), Biomedical Enabling Technologies, Biomarkers, Disease, and Developing Therapies.

Headline projects and different ways of working collaboratively with SBBS will be highlighted in Showcase Presentations in each of the themed sessions. Further research expertise, in these specific areas, will be captured in a series of short 5 minute pitches from Academic Principal Investigators. These introductory pitches will alert you to partnering possibilities that can be explored further in one to one consultations.

Accessing funding opportunities for both Preliminary/Pathfinder projects and Project Translation will be outlined in a specific session.

On the day there will be a ‘Recruitment Stand’ where Industry, undergraduates, postgraduates and post-doctoral researchers can network and discuss internships, placements and careers. In addition, the excellent Research Facilities available at Durham University will be showcased and experts will be on hand to discuss the services we can provide to Industry.

To allow potential industrial partners to make the most of a visit to Durham University we invite all participants to Ask an Academic; upload a specific query or problem that a group of Biomedical Biologists and Technologists will address and if possible they will suggest a solution. You will receive a written response prior to the meeting and if appropriate an invitation to discuss your query in more detail. We hope this proactive approach will accelerate further collaboration. To submit a question go to ask an academic.
