Cambridge Centre of the Biomedical Engineering Association Inaugural Lecture

Heathcare is going mobile, there is no denying it, and this is not just about healthcare apps becoming mainstream but more fundamentally about healthcare being brought to the patient, where they are or close to where they are. Point of Care healthcare requires medical technology to re-invent itself. The needs of Point of Care medical applications are radically different from those of the central lab. Our speaker will focus on sensing technologies and how those are evolving to enable Point of Care healthcare.

Professor Chris Lowe OBE , FREng, FInstP, FRSC is an Emeritus Professor with the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. His primary research interest is in healthcare biotechnology, particularly where it is applied to the high-value low-volume sectors of biopharmaceuticals, sensors and diagnostics and microbial technology. The work is highly multidisciplinary and not only covers aspects of molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry, physics, electronics and engineering, but also the entire range from fundamental science to strategic and applied science, much of which has significant commercial application. Professor Lowe has been the driving force for the establishment of ten spin-out companies, and has been awarded several national and international prizes and distinctions, including “Most Entrepreneurial Scientist of the UK” Award: UKSEC (2006), Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education: The Royal Anniversary Trust (2007), Officer of the British Empire (OBE): New Year Honours (2010) and BBSRC Commercial Innovator of the Year (2011). He holds visiting Professorships at the Universities of Bath (UK), Lund (Sweden) and the Australian National University (ANU)(2013).

Refreshments at 1830, lecture starts at 1900.
