Interdisciplinary Research, my journey and insights

Cicely Saunders Institute, Denmark Hill Campus, London

26 Feb Professor Dame Jessica Corner Part of Cicely Saunders Institute Seminar Series

By Professor Dame Jessica Corner, University of Nottingham

This seminar is about Professor Dame Jessica Corner's involvement in research, in cancer and end of life care over the last 35 years, and for the last several years as a Pro-Vice Chancellor providing strategic leadership for research in a very large, broadly-based, research intensive university.

Professor Dame Corner's experiences have given her many insights into the value of research drawn from distinct disciplines and the importance of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research especially when tackling challenge led and use inspired research. She will draw on these experiences to offer insights into how new forms of interdisciplinary or disciplinary flu-id research will increasingly be a new ‘normal’ and how colleagues working in applied health disciplines might capitalise on this.
