The Medical Research Council Impact Acceleration Account (MRC IAA) awarded the University of Kent £357,000 to flexibly support a wide range of translational research projects. This award aims to accelerate the transition from early discovery research towards patient benefit.
This event will showcase collaborative projects between researchers, clinicians and industry partners funded through the University of Kent BBSRC and MRC Impact Accelerator Accounts (IAAs). There will also be a reverse pitch event where Discovery Park businesses will be able to present their ideas to both academic and clinical researchers. Lunch will include a poster session and attendees are encouraged to bring a poster along and participate in this networking event.
