Symposium is a chance to shout about Papworth research

The latest research being carried out at Papworth Hospital will be showcased at a special event in November.

The Papworth Research Symposium will highlight some of the most up-to-date research findings and examine practicalities of conducting successful research projects.

The theme of the event – which will be held at Papworth Village Hall between 8.30am and 5pm on Wednesday, November 8 – is Translational Research.

Keynote speakers will include: Professor Tariq Sethi, Head of Translational Medicine Unit at AstraZeneca; Dr James Clulow, Innovation Manager Health Enterprise East, and Anna Ellis Patient & Public Involvement Officer, Cambridge University Hospitals.

Papworth clinicians Dr Ian Smith, Dr Robert Rintoul, Dr Stephen Hoole, Dr Timothy G Quinnell, Mr Samer Nashef, Mr Yasir Abu Omar and Dr Andrew Grace will also speak.

Chrissie Mills, Clinical Project Manager at Papworth, said: “We’re focusing on research that will make a change in clinical practice. We have a huge and growing research department here at Papworth and this is an opportunity for us to let more people know what’s going on.”

Tickets are free for Papworth staff and £25 for external guests. Staff can book their place online through Eventbrite using the promotional code “PapworthStaff” – please click on the banner on the homepage of the intranet for the booking page.

The symposium will also include two mini oral presentation sessions. Anyone conducting research at, or outside, the hospital is invited to submit an abstract.
