CEB Research Day 2016

last modified Jan 13, 2016 12:19 PM

CEB hosted its annual Research Open Day on 12 January 2016 at Robinson College in Cambridge.

Professor John Dennis (Head of Department) kicked off the event with an opening welcome. He said, "The Research Open Day is a very important activity in presenting the very best of our research and, in particular, demonstrating its impact on industry, on healthcare and on society in general. It is also noteworthy that it is organised by our talented cohort of post-doctoral researchers, and it is their talent, enthusiasm and commitment to CEB and to their research which brings a distinctive freshness and liveliness to the proceedings. It is an important occasion for CEB."

There were talks and poster sessions and opportunities for cross-disciplinary networking. Over 20 of our corporate partners attended the Research Day.

The formal part of the day was rounded off with a plenary talk by Michelle L. Oyen, a Reader in Bioengineering in the Mechanics and Materials Division and the Bioengineering research group in the Cambridge University Engineering Department. She spoke on Nanofiber Composites as Biomimetic Soft Tissue Scaffolds.

During the wine reception after that talk, participants were able to unwind with their academic peers, discuss potential collaborations and develop new ideas.
