On Thursday 27 June, the CDT hosted a range of industry associates for its annual Supervisor-Industry Networking Event at St Thomas’ Hospital. The day provided the opportunity for the 29 industry associates attending to meet with supervisors, with some of our students and with each other.

The event began with presentations by CDT Directors Profs Julia Schnabel and Nick Long introducing the new EPSRC CDT in Smart Medical Imaging and by Dr Andrew Melbourne introducing the new MRes in Healthcare Technologies course.

Each company represented then presented their own research interests. Following a networking lunch over which CDT students presented research posters to attendees, 1-to-1 meetings were then held between industry attendees and CDT supervisors, and our Industry Advisory Board met to discuss the CDT’s industrial strategy, CDT student industry placements, mentorship and careers training.

The event was also the first opportunity for industry associates, supervisors and students alike to review the CDT’s new brochure.
