BHP Research Showcase

Birmingham Health Partners (BHP) will be holding its annual Research Showcase on Friday 18 May featuring interactive displays about local innovations and health research that is delivering fantastic benefits to patients.
Exciting developments in the last year include the opening of a dedicated medical devices testing centre which is speeding up the application of new technology into use in health care, improved knowledge about rare diseases and cancer through looking at our genes and advances in areas such as audiology and cardiology.
The Showcase forms part of the National Institute for Health Research’s (NIHR) ‘I Am Research’ campaign which marks International Clinical Trials Day, and aims to encourage patients and the public to ask about the opportunities for them to make a difference by taking part in clinical research.
Delivered on behalf of BHP, this year’s event will be held in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham's Main Atrium and also mark 70 years of the NHS with many exhibits demonstrating seven decades of innovation and development in many medical disciplines.
