NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre Showcase

RDC Symposium Event 2019

This exciting virtual event provided an opportunity for our community of researchers, funders, collaborators and external stakeholders to come together to celebrate the NIHR GOSH BRC's research activities and successes from across the last three years.

We featured research stories and successes from across the BRC, including from some of our early career researches, touching on future strategic direction of the themes.

It also highlighted some of our patient and public involvement and engagement activities and how the BRC plays a vital role in GOSH as a Research Hospital.

Around 320 people joined us from a wide range of backgrounds and fields and, along with the UK, we had international attendees from Taiwan, Italy, France, US, Canada, Germany, Ireland and Iceland. Thank you again for joining us.

We also ran a live vote for A Moment of Research 2021, with over 100 attendees voting. The winning image will be announced shortly.
