Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine is undertaking research on less invasive means of surgery, which means shorter hospitalisation and recovery times for patients.
Imperial harnesses some of the greatest minds in the country to ponder this question.
- We host events such as the recent Innovation Summit, where leading financial experts spoke about the challenges faced by the economy.
- The Business School runs courses in finance for postgraduates, including an MSc in Finance, as well as a recently created MSc in Risk Management and Financial Engineering.
Imperial has recently received funding for research into designing and building unique ‘metamaterials’. An announcement was made in November 2009 about a £4.9 million funding boost from the Leverhulme Trust.
