An evening of free mini lectures on medicine and health is being held to provide a taste of learning and research at University Centre Shrewsbury.

Renowned academics from the Institute of Medicine will share insights on a selection of topics at The Guildhall in Frankwell Quay on Thursday 26 November 2015.

The Institute of Medicine is based in the University Centre’s medicine and health curriculum area.

Three lectures, of between 20 and 30 minutes each, will be presented from 6.30pm to 8pm. Each lecture will be followed by an opportunity to put questions to the speakers.

The lectures will be presented by:

  • Prof Elizabeth Mason-Whitehead on ‘From Stigma to Equality (in Health and Society)’
  • Prof John Williams on ‘Frontiers in Molecular Medicine’
  • Prof Ben Green and Dr June Keeling on ‘Domestic Violence and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)’

Prof Anna Sutton, University Centre Shrewsbury Provost, said:

“Our distinguished academics have joined together to offer snapshots of our learning and research in one evening.

“The lectures will highlight some of the subjects we cover in our curriculum and how we explore these areas to see where new findings can make a difference. In addition, the event will help us to raise awareness of issues in medicine and health, to a wider audience.

“We urge people to come along to hear the lectures and put questions to the presenters.

“The evening is part of ongoing open events and activities which provide the opportunity to share more about our work and for people across the community to get involved in University Centre life.

“The event is free and open to everyone, whether a college or university student, a professional working in medicine and health, or people just interested in the lecture topics or what is happening at University Centre Shrewsbury.”

Light refreshments will be provided.
