Featured collection: Translation in healthcare

 This article collection emerges from the ‘Translation in Healthcare: Exploring the Impact of Emerging Technologies’ conference 2015 hosted by the Centre for Health, Law and Emerging Technologies (HeLEX) at the University of Oxford. Here a wide range of voices were brought together to discuss and think more deeply about the technological, legal, ethical, and social challenges raised by new technologies in healthcare.
