GSK Consumer Healthcare is in the business of supporting the ‘everyday health’ of the public. Our aim is to create new products, devices and services that can be used, in a social and domestic setting, to improve all our lives. We are interested in understanding health and condition diagnosis in order to deliver better and earlier interventions. Within CAPE , we have a focus on science and technology that helps us improve our understanding of human health and the ways it can be positively influenced. This presentation will outline our current research areas and will provide an overview of specific topics we will target with our forthcoming proposal calls under the “Systems and Devices for Health” theme.
