An artificial pancreas, a disposable tourniquet, and ear-mounted body sensors were among the Imperial projects on display at the NHS Healthcare Innovation Expo 2011 this month. The Expo is the largest public sector health and social care event in Europe, attracting over 10,000 delegates to the Excel centre in East London on March 9th and 10th.

On display were a number of innovations emerging from Imperial’s Academic Health Science Centre, a partnership between the College and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust set up to improve the quality of life of patients and populations by taking new discoveries and translating them into new therapies as quickly as possible.

To see a video in which, AHSC policy adviser Peter Davies explains Imperial’s involvement in the Expo, Gursharan Randhawa from Imperial Innovations describes how a medical student’s idea became a successful spin-out company, and Pau Herrero from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering talks about his group’s artificial pancreas project, please click here http://bit.ly/fds4sv
