About DHEZ Academic
The University of Bradford and the Digital Health Enterprise Zone (DHEZ) are launching a new research and innovation centre created to encourage pioneering relationships between academics, researchers, business and health professionals.
DHEZ Academic will support the research and development of digital health innovations that improve the lives of people living with long-term conditions. The DHEZ Academic building on the University of Bradford City Campus, Phoenix South West, has undergone an extensive transformation into a digital health facility. It is the University’s focal point for access to the newest technology, research, and projects in digital health. It offers four floors of research, learning, exhibition and business incubation space. It also has public clinics for physiotherapy, eye examinations and reviews of patient medicines, which use the latest industry standard technology for high quality teaching and patient experiences.
The new facility will be launched with an inaugural lecture by Shafi Ahmed; a surgeon, teacher, futurist, innovator, entrepreneur and an evangelist in Augmented and Virtual Reality. He is currently working as a laparoscopic colorectal surgeon at The Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals.
The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session with Mr Ahmed and representatives from DHEZ Academic. Following the lecture there will be the opportunity to tour the facilities now based at the centre.
