"Today made me aware that we can all be innovators. We can make things happen if we have an idea. Innovation isn't just for the older businessmen, we can all be innovators" 

Innovation 2017 Delegate


Imperial College Surgical Society warmly welcomes you to Innovation Conference 2018. Set in the heart of London, this national and multi-disciplinary event brings together sixth form, medical, engineering, business and design students to front of medical evolution.

Throughout the day, our distinguished innovators hope to inspire the next generation. We provide hands-on experience with the latest technologies developed in medicine and surgery through specialist workshops, our prestigious speakers and this years Hackathon. Innovation Conference 2018 looks to be best yet. 

Our Speakers

Tal Golesworthy

Tal Golesworthy is a process engineer by trade - working on boilers and flues. When diagnosed with life-threatening aortic dilation, and surgeons offered him an operation with life-long side effects, Mr Golesworthy used his engineering skills to design a device to fix his heart - and had this revolutionary device implanted by pioneering surgeons in London.

Noyan Songur

With an impressive background including research at Columbia University New York, and Imperial College London, Noyan has also attained experience within financial institutions and medical device companies. His current research at Imperial College focuses on developing gaze-based interfaces between humans and machines.

Dr Tom Peach

With both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in engineering from Cambridge, and a PhD in bioengineering from Oxford, Dr Peach is very familiar with working at the forefront of cutting-edge medical research. He also writes for the international medical innovation website, consults for a number of medical device spinouts, and has a passion for research and the medical device industry -from basic science to start-ups and commercialization.



We have 5 incredible workshops lined up for delegates at our conference, each designed to inspire and inform. From a FREE Virtual Reality headset for every delegate, to a workshop run by the Imperial College Enterprise Lab, we can't wait to show you the future of medical innovation.


Ready to get innovating yourself?

Delegates will work together to create a solution to a real world challenge in healthcare. After we give you the brief, you're given two hours to develop your ideas and develop a marketing strategy for your product, after which you give a 'Dragon's Den" style pitch to a panel of expert judges. 

The brief will be released at the start of the day, and prizes will be available to the winning team.
