The webcast for the Living with Environmental Change (LWEC) Research Theme event is now live.
Health Challenges in a Changing World was organised and funded by the University’s Living with Environmental Change research theme and showcased some of the challenges to our future health, and revealed how new research is helping us deal with them.
Speakers from across the three faculties gave presentations, which also included a talk and question and answer session by former President of the Royal Society, Lord May of Oxford and the former Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council Professor Colin Blakemore.
Professor Matthew Baylis, from the Institute of Infection and Global Health, said: “It was a really well received event with comments from many of the speakers about how pleased they were with the emphasis on cross-curricular collaboration. Many guests too, including health professionals, embraced and stressed the importance of the cross-faculty/subject approach.”

In a UK first, we've launched a new Research Technical Professional Career Pathway. Technical & research support staff are essential to UK research & innovation, and this scheme aims to improve the career pathways of colleagues in these roles.
A new digital tool will use climate data to help better predict and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks in the Horn of Africa.
Funded by @wellcometrust, the project is led by @LivUni_IVES with partners from Italy, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda & Somalia.
