The Panel for Biomedical Engineering organises this biennial, multi-disciplinary meeting to attract the best young engineers and scientists from throughout the UK. The meeting provides a unique forum for early-career researchers to showcase their work with opportunities for mentoring and guidance on scientific and professional opportunities from selected experts. The aim is to encourage feedback, promote collaboration between the delegates and explore new ways of doing things.

This year's meeting will focus on medical imaging and interventions in cancer. Sessions will include emerging imaging techniques, image guided radiotherapy, image guided surgery and intervention, robotics and smart instruments and clinical and industrial translation. There will also be a career development workshop with guidance on academic and non-academic career pathways.

The meeting is for UK-based post-doctoral researchers and will be hosted by Imperial College London from 7th - 9th September, 2016.
