Thursday 25 May 2017, 09:30 – 13:30

Doug Ellis Lecture Theatre & Café Room, ITM

Heritage Building, Old Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TH

This is the first of a regular series of Innovation Engine events to be showcased in the Institute of Translational Medicine at the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

The aim of the event series is to stimulate conversations and collaborations between clinicians, industry and researchers, which will lead to innovative solutions to the challenges within the NHS. Each event will focus on a particular theme and clinicians will present on the challenges they face within their discipline. This will be followed by a discussion session and the opportunity to network with clinicians, academics and those from industry.

The first event will focus on the issue of sepsis and the challenges faced in detecting and treating it, as well rehabilitating those patients affected by it. Speakers at the event will include:

  • Dr Tom Clutton-Brock, Clinical Director, NIHR Trauma Management Healthcare Technology Cooperative & Reader in Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine
  • Dr Tony Whitehouse, Consultant Critical Care and Anaesthesia

The aim of Innovation Engine is to increase Small Medium Enterprise (SME) investment in research and innovation by enabling SMEs to participate in solving the challenges of larger organisations. The two fold approach of lowering the risk of innovation and increasing the market demand results in a more effective and sustainable method of bringing new products, processes and services to market.
