Across all the technical domains in academia, healthtech performs amongst the best when it comes to diversity; encompassing a range of areas from health informatics and clinical data science, to biomedical engineering. Yet whilst healthcare is broadly gender-balanced, women working on what will be the future of the clinical and biomedical fields are still enormously underrepresented in academia. This can be seen across the board, such as the small percentage of female professors in healthtech domains, or only ~15% of life science university spin-outs being female-led.
Join us for a half-day conference where we will discuss the domain-specific challenges and opportunities, hear from a range of young to esteemed women, and most importantly, have some fun! In addition, we are also hosting an ECR soiree!

Early Career Researcher Evening - Small plates, wine and discussions at Abuelo.
In addition, an evening event for a small group of female early career researchers (priority will be given to PhD students) is being held on the 3rd of July with the view of assimilating a range of healthtech academic researchers and their networks, and guiding the launch of a new national Academic and Student HealthTech Hub. Please register your interest at the check-out, we promise a summery evening of fun!
This half-day conference and early-career researcher evening is supported by the UCL Doctoral Skills Development Programme Team from a Researcher-Led Initiative Award and One HealthTech.
