Why you should attend

This event will present two projects at the forefront of biomedical engineering research. It will explore the challenges experienced in glaucoma management and the role played by biomedical engineers. It will give an insight into the development and application of a novel device to continuously monitor internal eye pressure for improved glaucoma management. The event will also explore the prevention of adhesion of bacteria on surfaces in order to address biofilm formation in the design of new therapeutics and antimicrobial surfaces.

Delegates will have the opportunity to take part in respective laboratory tours and demonstrations.
