Digital: the new frontier in healthcare

Everything is affected by the digital revolution. The opportunities for improving healthcare could be extraordinary. Interdisciplinary research is key to this. The UCL Festival for Digital Health will connect UCL’s world-class research in computer science, engineering, medicine and health service delivery. Together they can have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations. Collaborations across engineering and healthcare will make UCL a leading institution for Digital Health research. Join us to discover new technologies, Share achievements, Network with staff, industry and healthcare and Create new collaborations – a new momentum!

Eric de Silva

Position: Associate Director for Research & Development
Affiliation: UCL Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME)

Eric’s PhD was in extragalactic astrophysics at the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Following this he worked on statistical/population genetics and biological networks/evolutionary biology in the Theoretical Systems Biology group at Imperial College. Following a stint in science communication he worked in the Centre for Process Systems developing mathematical models of protein synthesis. He subsequently joined the Evolutionary Epidemiology group at Imperial studying how evolutionary changes at the genetic sequence level interact with those at the epidemiological scale. At the IBME he is responsible for creating new links and collaborative efforts between groups/disciplines across UCL & partner hospitals.
