Biomedical Engineering exemplifies convergence science which cuts across all stages of patient health, traversing early diagnosis, clinical intervention, follow-up monitoring and rehabilitation. The Theme is positioned at the interface between bioengineering innovations and clinical practice to drive the translation of original research to increase the efficiency, accuracy, and reach of healthcare technologies and devices to enable less invasive, more cost-effective and more equitable healthcare, and to realise currently unavailable procedures and therapies.
The overall aim is to provide a patient-centred technology gateway into clinical practice for North-West London, where technologies come into the theme through two routes: patient-led demand for the technology and identification of available technologies to fulfil patient needs.
