A new programme which aims to encourage more innovation in medical research has been announced.

The Innovative Medical Research Programme will run as part of the GIANT Health Event 2021 held on November 30 – December 1 this year.

The programme is an inaugural event in the annual conference dedicated to promoting innovative research and the people behind them in the field of medical technology.

Delegates, including medical students and doctors, are invited to submit a maximum of two 250-word abstracts based on their research conducted in this field.

Those whose research is among the top-scoring abstracts by a panel comprised of healthcare and health tech leaders, they will have the chance to present in front of the expert audience at the GIANT Health Event 2021, with a further chance of winning a selection of prizes.

Professor Shafi Ahmed, a futurist and multi-award-winning cancer surgeon working at The Royal London Hospital, will give the welcoming address at the event.

He says: “For more than 18 months since the start of the pandemic, there has been a decreasing number of opportunities for people to present their work through gatherings, conferences and exhibitions. GIANT Health is aiming to lead the way to help reopen society. We aim to celebrate the incredible work carried out by healthcare workers, students and academics across Europe and beyond.”

GIANT Health’s wider mission is to improve the health and well being of people around the world by promoting healthcare innovation.

Founder Barry Shrier, GIANT Health founder, says: “The GIANT Health Event 2021 is the ideal opportunity for academics and students of leading institutions to present the amazing research they have been doing over the last few years and their careers. They will be able to network with leaders of the medical technology industry, as well as a wide variety of healthcare companies.”

The GIANT Health Innovative Medical Research Programme will be held on Wednesday, December 1, as part of a series of virtual and hybrid events.
