FISH Meets Medicine Hackathon

The FISH Meets Medicine hackathon will be an opportunity for physicists, medics, engineers, computer scientists and chemists to come together and form groups to solve problems in the field of medicine.

Register for two days of inspiring talks and opportunities to work as part of inter-disciplinary teams on real-world problems. It's a great opportunity to develop skills, not forgetting that we will provide lunch, snacks and drinks to keep you going. 

After the event, we will support your team in completing your project.
