Distinguished Research Lecture explores healthcare innovation


29-10-2014

Join Microsoft Research on 18 November to hear from Professor The Lord Darzi of Denham.

 

Technological innovation has had a profound impact on human health and life expectancy over the recent history of mankind.

In his lecture, Professor Darzi will discuss the key drivers of healthcare innovation, arguing that more of the same is not enough to tackle the spiralling costs and gross inequalities faced by modern healthcare systems. Outlining some of his key research highlights to date - including advances in minimally invasive, image-guided and robotic surgery - Lord Darzi will make the case for a new approach to technological innovation, which requires learning across the spectrum of low- to high-income countries, in order to champion and spread the best in frugal and low-cost design.

Lecture details

Tuesday 18 November, 4.30-5.30pm, followed by drinks and canapés.
