Inaugural Lecture: Professors Joerg Steier and Kim Wolff

New Hunt’s House, Guy’s Campus, London

24 Apr ILS 24 April Part of Inaugural Lecture Series: Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine

Join us to celebrate this special milestone for our new professors and hear about their inspiring career journeys.

And so to sleep

Sleep is important for any living creature to restore function, rest and regenerate. However, some sleep disorders lead to sleep fragmentation which results in daytime symptoms like sleepiness, and potential long-term ill health. In his lecture, Professor Joerg Steier will discuss sleep-disordered breathing, particularly obstructive sleep apnoea, how to best treat it, and what to consider if first-line therapy fails. 

The methadone queen

This lecture will take you through Professor Kim Wolff's early career as a PhD student studying the pharmacokinetics of methadone in heroin addicts and her continued interest in problematic drug use and abuse over the last 20 years, through to her work in supporting the new government legislation for Drug-Driving to her current role as the new Director of King’s Forensics
