Insigneo Showcase 2015

Insigneo Showcase 2015

On 8th May 2015, the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine is hosting its annual Showcase event at the University of Sheffield’s Firth Hall. The annual Showcase is your opportunity to find out more about the cutting edge developments taking place at the Institute. The event offers Insigneo’s researchers from the University and NHS Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust, our industrial contacts and academic colleagues from a variety of disciplines a chance to get together for a day of discussions, networking and presentations. The event is for invited guests only and with more than 200 high profile attendees from healthcare research and industry, the Showcase is the focal point in Insigneo’s event calendar.

In 2015 we have chosen to put special spotlight on the highly topical theme of ‘Big Data Analytics’. Alongside focused discussions around the Big Data Analytics theme, the popular core elements of the Showcase are going to take centre stage again. The exhibition area will give an insight into the latest research developments within the institute, there will be selected talks from Insigneo members and their research groups, as well as plenty of networking opportunity during lunch and coffee breaks (refreshments provided). New to the 2015 programme is a panel debate, further details of which will be announced early next year, along with the full programme. If you are interested in attending the event and have not yet received an invitation please email info@insigneo.org for more information.

There’s still time to register for the Insigneo Showcase! If you would like to attend and haven’t already signed up please email Lesley Statham.
