Join us between 2-7pm at the W12 Conference Centre at Hammersmith Hospital on the 8th February 2016 for a free event showcasing clinical and health research at Imperial!
Maybe you want to learn about the research we carry out at Imperial?
Maybe you want to speak to the investigators carrying out research?
Maybe you want to participate in research?
Or maybe you just want to understand how and why we invest in certain areas of research?
Whatever your background or interest, our interactive exhibits, short talks, facility tours and round table discussions will help answer your questions. This is your opportunity to not only understand why health research matters but also help shape clinical research in the future.
And if all that doesn’t tempt you, there are also free refreshments and a drinks reception at the end of the day!
