A wide spectrum of medical and health research was showcased at a poster display

Health and medicine showcase hailed a success

A dynamic event highlighted the wide range of medical and health research involving the University of Exeter, the NHS and business partners.

Staff from a number of University departments, the NHS, local charities and businesses, as well as  students, gathered in the Forum, to speak to researchers first-hand about their pioneering work as part of a poster display.

Interdisciplinary opportunities in research were highlighted by the key note speeches from Professor Nick Stone of Physics, Dr Natalia Lawrence of Psychology, and Professor Jonathan Mill, of the University of Exeter Medical School (UEMS).

Professor Angela Shore, of UEMS, said the event was a “great success”. She said: “It was fantastic to see 150 posters of work from the Medical School, other Colleges from the University of Exeter, the NHS and the Met office. There was a real buzz and great discussions around the posters. This was a great networking event and an opportunity to highlight the crucial relationships we have with external partners.”

Crawford Winlove, lecturer in Neuroscience at UEMS, won a prize for the best poster in the display.
