The 2019 Oxford BHF CRE symposium on Thursday 3rd October opened with a presentation of the Oxford BHF CRE Research Themes. The discussion set out the research opportunities across the CRE for collaborative working and future research.
The day also included a poster-blitz session and talks from researchers across the BHF CRE including illustrations of support from the Centre. There was lots of time to view and discuss the posters and our judges awarded prizes to the best student and non-student posters. Congratulations to the prize winners listed below!
We were delighted to have Professor Duncan Richards as the Keynote speaker, presenting his talk
“Harnessing the potential of new discovery technologies to deliver better medicines for patients- challenges and opportunities”, which generated lots of interest, questions and opportunities for future collaborative working.
Special thanks to Dr Thomas Nicol for the photographs.
