The monthly biomedical forum is open to anyone with an interest in translational research. It's an integral part of our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, providing researchers and clinicians with a unique opportunity to showcase translation in biomedical and clinical research. The forums are central to encouraging and enthusing basic scientists, clinicians, allied healthcare professionals, research support staff and managers to engage in translational research. Through these fora, our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre also aims to breakdown any perceived barriers and foster collaboration between these groups.
The biomedical forum is usually held on the first Wednesday of every month, in conjunction with the medical staff meetings at Guy's and St Thomas' and James Black Centre Seminars at Denmark Hill. It is also video-linked to colleagues at Queen Mary, University of London and the Karolinska Insitute in Sweden.
The forum is overseen by Professor Andy Cope, Cluster Lead for the School of Translational and Experimental Medicine.
Attendees see the Forum at one of the following sites:
St Thomas' Campus
Denmark Hill Campus
Queen Mary, University of London
Karolinska Institute, Sweden
Everyone is welcome to join the biomedical forum meetings but attendance is particularly encouraged from translational researchers (clinical and non-clinical) of all disciplines and at all levels of training, in addition to researchers involved in the research themes of our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.
For those who are unable to attend on the day, the fora are recorded and can be viewed online.
