Digital health technologies for precision medicine: a seminar and workshop

19TH JUNE 2023

Please join CENSIS and the team from the University of Glasgow’s Digital Health Validation Lab for a half-day seminar and workshop on opportunities and challenges around digital health technologies for precision medicine, including NHS implementation processes for new drugs and medical devices.

While the event ends at 2pm, informal meeting space is available until 5pm for delegates wishing to continue conversations.

With a mix of delegates including clinicians, academic researchers and private business, this event aims to introduce people to DHVL and explore the wider opportunities associated with the Living Laboratory, with a view to generating new collaborative partnerships and business engagement between industry, clinicians and the University of Glasgow.

Who should attend?

To get the most from this event, you should have an active or developing academic, clinical or industry interest/expertise in technologies associated with digital health development or precision medicine.

Regrettably, this workshop is not open to undergraduate students or taught postgraduate students in any discipline (or very recent graduates)

The Living Laboratory and DHVL

The University of Glasgow-led Living Laboratory for Precision Medicine, an internationally leading programme supported by UKRI Strength in Places Funding, brings together partners from across academia, industry and healthcare to deliver projects focused on translating cutting-edge science and healthcare innovation into a real-world clinical setting.

One of these projects is the Digital Health Validation Lab, led by Prof Sandosh Padmanabhan. The lab offers specialised space that allows digital health developers to assess their products along the entire development process, from determining feasibility and value of a product idea through to testing the safety and efficacy of a completed product, enhancing the evaluation and validation of digital health technologies for clinical use.

Digital health technologies

According to the Living Laboratory, the digital health technology market is the fastest growing sector in the wider digital tech sector. However, investment and effort are currently focused on early-stage product development. As these technologies develop, they can sometimes lack clinical validation and, as such, their adoption into clinical settings can be slow and their benefit to patients delayed.

DHVL offers a co-development environment where industry, innovators and start-ups can securely access clinical resources and data, integrated within NHS systems to test and validate their innovations.
