Location George Davies Centre (Bina Popat Lecture Theatre, 1st floor) 15 Lancaster Road Leicester LE1 7HA

Prof Deborah Ashby (Imperial College London and RSS president)

About the event:

Statistical theory, making epidemiological observations and carrying out incisive analyses of them, and designing and carrying out elegant clinical trials are all absorbing, challenging academic activities in their own right. However, sometimes we can be left wondering ‘So what?’. Using those underpinning sciences to make a tangible difference to people’s health sometimes means going the extra mile, and venturing into worlds beyond the ivory tower.

Drawing on Deborah’s experiences from the worlds of academia, drug regulation and research funding, she will look at some examples that have made a difference, reflecting on both the scientific underpinnings, and the pathways to making an impact, as well as her personal reflections on that journey.

Timings:
13:00-14:00 (Talk + Q&A)
14:00-14:30 (Refreshments)
