The University of Bath and the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust hosted an event to celebrate the collaborative health research that is being carried out in Bath.
The Health Research Showcase was held on Wednesday 17 June and attended by over 200 people, including public, academics and NHS staff. The showcase provided an opportunity to learn about how important health research is for improving people’s health and wellbeing, as well as improving patient experience and care.
Speakers, including Professor Chris Eccleston (UoB) and Professor Carol Peden (RUH), discussed the ‘Good News’ and ‘Bad News’ for common health issues such as cancer, pain, diabetes, arthritis and dementia; and how research is tackling these issues.
There was also a research poster display that highlighted the diversity of the health research being done by the University and the Hospital.
The showcase was well received and ended with a lively drinks reception, which gave attendees a chance to speak with the experts. Based on its success, the University of Bath and RUH Bath NHS Foundation Trust aim to make the showcase an annual celebration of local research.
We are aiming to encourage fresh research collaborations between the University and the NHS. If you would like to progress a research project with the Royal United Hospital, please contact Lisa Austin, Research manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
