Only twenty years ago a diagnosis of AIDS was a death sentence, now it is a long-term condition with no impact on life span. Over the last century and a half many discoveries have been made that have transformed human life expectancy and prevented numerous fatal illnesses. Sometimes these advances could have had a much more rapid impact had the medical community been less wedded to the status quo.
In this lecture Professor Lechler will examine ten key advances and draw some lessons for the future.
This is a free event, which means we overbook to allow for no-shows and avoid empty seats. This means we cannot guarantee all ticket holders a place. Admission is on a first come, first served basis. Those without tickets will not be admitted. We will not be admitting people ten minutes after the start time, to minimize disruption.
