ARU's Medical Technology Research Centre (MTRC) is delighted to host its first annual research conference. The conference is free and open to all.

The MTRC is involved in a number of important medical technology and drug discovery projects including the search for a non-surgical treatment for cataracts, a drug combination to fight fibrosis, and work to improve circulatory health. The conference will showcase that work.

Our keynote speaker is Professor Sir Tom Blundell, who was part of the team that discovered the structure of insulin.

Professor Blundell will speak about structural biology, bioinformatics and drug discovery in areas such as cancer, Covid-19 and mycobacterial infections, which can cause conditions such as tuberculosis.

Professor Tony Young OBE, National Clinical Lead for Innovation for NHS England, will also speak about the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, which is being delivered by ARU and aims to encourage innovation within the health service.
