Our events programme for February to July 2018 is now available. We’ve got some exciting and special events lined up over the next few months and we hope you can join us.
Our Glasgow History of Meicine Seminars are well under way and we’ve already had some fascinating talks on quackery and miscarriage. Catch our final talk of this season on the 20th March and learn about the Genome of Humanity with Dr Sarah Chan (University of Edinburgh).
On 17th April we’ll be celebrating all things Jospeh Lister at our very special Listermania event marking 150 years since Lister delivered a public lecture in our College on his theory of antiseptic surgery. We’ll be joined by a host of special guest including Greig Trout (101 Things To Do When You Survive), Mr Pankaj Chandak (pioneering surgeon, Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Great Ormond Street Hospitals and Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellow) and Dr Lindsey Fitzharris (author of the award-winning book The Butchering Art: Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine).
The second in our Visualising Medical Heritage events takes place in May. Join us for a family workshop of storytelling and digital visualisation. You can read more about the project here.
Our annual Goodall Symposium takes place in June and this year we’ll be looking back at 70 years of the NHS and some of the medical milestones achieved during this time.
