BHF CRE Symposium 23rd November 2022
Wednesday, 23 November 2022
Oxford Town Hall, St Aldates
An in-person event for the first time since 2019, the Oxford BHF CRE Annual Symposium took place at Oxford Town Hall on Wednesday 23rd November 2022, and everyone was delighted to be back.
A busy and productive day of networking and scientific exchange, the event showcased scientific discovery within each of the four themes, as well as focusing on specific research across the network.
Keynote speaker Professor Ben Goldacre, Director of the Bennett Institute for Applied Data Science, completed the programme, explaining how we can all help to achieve better, broader, safer use of health data.
Over 40 students and researchers entered the poster competition, with judges agreeing that the overall standard was so excellent, it was difficult to select winners. In addition to the lunchtime viewing and judging session, 10 pre-selected competitors also had the opportunity to give blitz presentations of their abstracts.
