It was organised by Oxford University Innovation in partnership with the Oxford Academic Health Sciences Network and the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
The overall theme was 'Big Healthcare Challenges in Chronic Disease', and delegates heard about the following new technologies from our Department:

Nick Scott-Ram, Director of Commercial Development, Oxford Academic Health Science Network, said: 'The Oxford Technology Showcase has proved itself over the last few years to be a key event for people aiming to gain a view of the innovation ecosystem here in Oxford at work. You can get an insight right through from the origination of an innovation at the University or in the NHS through the development and funding pathways we have to consider, to its use in the healthcare system and patient outcomes we’re aiming to improve.'
