Liverpool students showcase innovation at Santander Universities event
Last Tuesday, Santander Universities hosted an event at the Victoria Gallery Museum to celebrate its collaboration with the University of Liverpool. The event gave student entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to showcase their businesses and future projects to members of the Santander organization, different departments of the University and external companies.
Winning the Enterprise fund just two months ago gave Moises Barbera, a student in our Department, the opportunity to showcase MedTech. This innovative project aims at improving the efficiency of surgeries around the world. Once proven successful, his approach could help treat broken bones more efficiently whilst at the same time reducing the amount of X-ray radiation required. This would enhance treatment, whilst lowering costs at the same time.
Such an ambitious project cannot be accomplished by just one person and that is why Moises formed a truly interdisciplinary team with two students from the Department of Engineering, Henry Tombs (UK) and Miguel Li (Peru). The international team has all the skills to realize their visionary technology.
During their presentation they showed progress already made in the project, including 3D designs of an initial prototype and business plans. They also presented targeted partnerships with hospitals, laboratories and organizations from all around Europe, as well as surgeons and clinical doctors from the UK and Spain who expressed support and assistance of their start-up which will be based in Sensor City and called Drill Surgeries.
