Where next for medical research?

25/01/2018, 19:00 - 20:30


Medical research has moved so fast that it can feel difficult to keep up.  It has transformed our lives, bringing everything from vaccines that save lives, to technologies that allow childless couples to conceive, joint replacements with ground-breaking new materials, surgical techniques which allow transplants, anaesthetics and drugs which can stop viruses from replicating.  Only 50 years ago many things we avail ourselves of now were science fiction.  So now that we have achieved so much: what next? Where is medical research heading and what could its impact on society be?  Join a panel of Cardiff University experts to discuss where research is heading, why it is important, and how it will affect the futures of all of us.


The highly successful Science in Health Public Lecture Series is now in its fifteenth year and attracts a diverse audience of interested individuals including the public, secondary school pupils and professionals.
