Over the decades the contribution of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), in healthcare has been meteoric. STEM experts in partnership with healthcare professionals have been at the forefront of innovation, contributing significantly in tackling global health challenges. A perfect example of this is the clinical engineering contribution to the NHS during Covid-19. The nature of the contribution of STEM in healthcare is multifaceted. These, amongst many, include contribution to new knowledge relating to disease; innovation of new technologies for the better monitoring and consequently diagnoses and treatment of disease improving patient outcomes; novel and intelligent processes enabling a better and safer running of our National Healthcare System, etc.
The primary motivation of these seminar series is to expose and stimulate our community with some of the most exciting and cutting-edge research and innovation of STEM in healthcare.
