By registering you are notifying Imperial College London Outreach of your interest in attending (for more information see below) Medical Sciences Day We have the opportunity for a group of up to 30 students from Year 12 or 13 to join us for a day of hands-on workshops run by current PhD students at Imperial College London. This event would be good for KS5 students interested in medicine/health sciences This day will involve the following workshops: We need to avoid misleading conclusions in health research!Students will collect data on their own characteristics (e.g. height, shoe size, etc) and analyse the data using statistical software. Students will look at the difference between causation and association and explore the importance of this distinction in health research.  How do we know that medicines work?We all encounter medicines in our day-to-day lives. But how do scientists discover whether new medicines are safe and work? This activity will get students playing the role of medical study participants, investigators and external monitors.  This event is for Key Stage Five (Years 12 and 13). Groups can be no larger than 30 students. The timetable for the day will be as followed (exact timing tbc): 10.30 - 11.00   Introduction11.00 - 12.15   Workshop 112.15 - 13.00   Lunch (packed lunches required)13.00 - 14.15   Workshop 214.15 - 14.30   Q&A with Student Ambassador14.30 - 15.00   Campus Tour IMPORTANT By registering you are informing us of your interest in participating in this event (in its entirety). We will allocate space(s) in accordance with our eligibility criteria which prioritises schools with a high proportion of students from widening participation backgrounds.

The Future for Visual Impairment Embracing Science, Technology and Success There are 2 million people in the UK living with sight loss and with an ageing population, the number of patients registered as blind or partially sighted is set to increase. Join us for a mini symposium discussing technological advances to help with vision loss, carrying the flag for visually impaired sport and the development of prospective therapies to treat sight loss. This event is being organised by the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, who, together with Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Trust have a proposal to relocate to a Kings Cross site in 2026, forming a new world-class integrated centre for eye care, research and education. This event is supported by the SenSyT symposium 2019 and is a free to attend public event, open and accessible to all, whatever your background. Schedule 11:00 - 11:40       Chieko Asakawa, IBM Fellow. Artificial inteligence for accessibility 11:40 - 12:20       Noel Thatcher, MBE, British Paralympian.                                                                             Carrying the flag - A paralympian journey 12:20 - 13:00       Andrew Dick, Director of UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. Project Oriel - Developing an integrated centre for advancing  eye health 13:00 - 14:00       Networking Lunch  Biographies Chieko Asakawa is an IBM Fellow working in the area of accessibility. Her initial contribution in the area started from braille digitalization and moved onto the Web accessibility, including the world first practical voice browser. Today, Chieko is focusing on advancing cognitive assistant research to help the blind regain information by augmenting missing or weakened abilities in the real world by the power of AI. In 2013, the government of Japan awarded Chieko with the Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon for her outstanding contributions to accessibility research. She was elected as a foreign member of the US National Academy of Engineering in 2017, and inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) in 2019. She has been also serving as an IBM Distinguished Service Professor at Carnegie Mellon University since 2014. Noel was born with optic atrophy and represented Great Britain at six summer Paralympic Games between 1984 and 2004, winning a total of five Gold medals in athletics at distances from 800 to 10.000 metres. In 1997, Noel was awarded an MBE for Services to Disability Sport, was inducted into the England Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009 and became a patron for British Blind Sport in 2012. Noel studied Japanese at SOAS and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level one in 2003 becoming the only visually-impaired person to do so. He has spoken widely in the UK and Japan on subjects including disability, inclusivity and sport and has worked with Paralympics GB, British Athletics, the Japan Foundation UK, the Japan Sports Council and the Japanese Embassy in London to promote sport for persons with an impairment. In 2019 Noel was awarded  the Japanese Foreign Ministers Commendation for promoting cultural exchange between Japan and the UK. Professor Andrew Dick qualified in medicine also with a degree in Biochemistry (BSc (Hons)) from the University of London, and during his medical education he also undertook an MRC research associate position in Biochemistry with Professor Coleman in Yale. Following training in internal medicine and MRCP he entered ophthalmology residency and obtained his postgraduate research degree in Immunology in 1993 at the University of Aberdeen. He underwent an MRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship to work at the Centenary Institute of Cancer Medicine and Cell Biology in Sydney Australia. His clinical expertise is in medical and surgical management of inflammatory disorders of the eye.  His research spans the basic and translational science conduit to early phase trials in inflammation as related to autoinflammatory, autoimmune and degenerative retinal disease. Professor Dick is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in the UK for his significant contribution to research and scholarship, in particular his development of molecular targets and biologic therapy for inflammatory eye disease and was awarded the Alcon Research Institute Research award in 2011. Prior to becoming Director of institute of Ophthalmology, the UCL-Institute of Ophthalmology, he was Director of Research for the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at University of Bristol.
