(and repeated on Thursday 31st January 2013, 16:00 - 17:00, followed by wine, Lecture Theatre 4, School of Chemistry)
Although not hosted by SPS, we would encourage you to come to this event even if you or your group do not consider yourselves to be active in health research. The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute wants to engage with researchers in ALL fields and we have significant funding and resources available to drive strategically important health research in its broadest sense (basic, clinical and social sciences, population health and engineering, mathematical and physical sciences, to name but a few). You may for instance have expertise, technologies, methodologies, models, compounds or other research findings that when appropriately applied in other fields could be transformative to human health.
This is a short internal launch event for the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research, hosted by the Director Professor Jeremy Tavaré. Jeremy will be joined by Professor Peter Mathieson in his role as Director of Bristol Health Partners, and together they will describe how these two new activities plan to work together. There will also be the opportunity to meet the newly appointed Elizabeth Blackwell Institute Manager, Dr Nina Couzin.
The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute's specific remit is very much cross-Faculty. It aims to foster health research at new and innovative inter-disciplinary boundaries, and support the people doing this research.
Bristol Health Partners has been set up to transform the understanding, prevention and treatment of key health problems in Bristol and beyond.
Please come and find out more about we plan to do. There will be a short presentation from each of the Directors, followed by plenty of time for questions.
In order that we can monitor numbers and provide enough wine for the afternoon launch please register your intention to attend here:
