Apollo London: The Launch

The official Apollo launch on 26th October 2018

We had an incredible launch for Apollo London, featuring Eureka Alumni Dr Cynthia Yu Wai Man and Dr Francesco Saverio Tedesco. We also fortunate enough to be joined by Apollo Utrecht members, who relayed their passion for Apollo International and joined us for our panel session. Saverio presented our keynote lecture presenting his translational research on therapies for muscular dystrophies. He wonderfully captured his translational journey, from his first publication in Science Translational Medicine as a PhD student in 2011 to his current work at UCL where he is translating early success in mouse models into therapies for patients.

Joint BRC event: Translational Research in Action

This full day event provided an introduction to translational research for students, early and mid-career researchers from both clinical and academic backgrounds. It was the first joint GOSH, Moorfields and UCLH BRC educational event.

Using examples of the challenges and successes of translational research from across the NIHR BRCs this event encouraged critical thinking, and enhanced collaboration across the spectrum of translational research. It aimed to provide researchers with knowledge and networks to accelerate their research for the benefits of patients.

Throughout the day there were talks and workshop style events to highlight challenges and opportunities in translational research, as well as time for networking and introductions to support services in translational research available through the UCL BRCs, as well as nationally and internationally. A highlight of the day was Professor Berent Prakken’s inspirational keynote talk on the skills, environment and training needed to nurture translational researchers.

Professor Berent Prakken, course leader and in member of our Advisory Board got us sharp and thinking about ourselves, by starting off asking us ‘who we are’. After deep thougts, Vicki Seyfert-Margolis from MyOwnMed organised a workshop on how to use data to make create a better healthcare system. Following this, a group of Apollo students is collaborating with her to build an app for students and academics all over the world.
