22 March, 2017 - A Climate of Change? Renegotiating Values in Science and Engineering Advice

Time: 18:00:00 - 19:00:00

In his inaugural lecture as Professor of Science, Technology and Public Policy within UCL's Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy, Professor Petersen will trace the relationship between university and government, from the birth of science advice to the present day. Positioning the university as a platform for independent thinking and partisan perspectives, he will explore its role in public decision-making around science, technology and engineering. Drawing on examples from across his career, Professor Petersen will address the intrinsic tensions between politics, religion, policy-making, science and technology. Looking to the future, he will offer a pragmatic way forward for the complex relationship between these practices, and highlight responsible strategies for regaining trust under allegedly 'post-truth' conditions. The lecture will be introduced by Professor David Price (Vice-Provost Research) and followed by a drinks reception from 19.00.

28 April, 2017 - Harnessing electronic health records for research

Time: -

2017 sees the return of our unique programme of inter-related one- and two-day courses in the rapidly developing field of electronic health records research, spanning a wide range of applications in basic and applied health research. These courses address the ‘why?’, the ‘what?’ and the ‘how?’ of EHR research and critically evaluate scientific opportunities and challenges, in what is being proposed as a new paradigm in medical research. Taught by internationally recognised faculty, they span data-intensive biomedical research across diverse forms of nationally available patient data from primary and secondary care. The courses are intended for people with from a wide range of backgrounds - including health care, epidemiology, biostatistics, health informatics, NHS IT, bioinformatics, genomics and computer science - and at different career stages, from those thinking of doing an MSc or PhD to established researchers.

3 May, 2017 - A Celebration of the Life and Work of Professor Brian Neville

Time: 09:00:00 - 13:30:00

should be delighted if you were able to join us for a series of lectures to celebrate the life and work of Professor Neville. Brian was appointed the first UK Chair of Paediatric Neurology, coming from Guys Hospital, in 1989. Upon retirement he was also the initial incumbent of the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy until 2007. On arrival at the Institute he set on an expansion of both the academic and clinical neuroscience departments, responsible for the expansion of development of the epilepsy surgery programme and ultimately the complex epilepsy unit, as well as a combined neurological approach to neurodisability. Throughout his career, the training and development of juniors in the specialty was key; he contributed on an international level to standardisation of training in paediatric neurology. Above all, he was an extremely caring man, who always thought of the children and their families first and foremost. Please email to register.

25 May, 2017 - Urban Lab Films: Cities of Sleep

Time: 18:30:00 - 21:00:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Urban Lab Films presents the UK premiere of award-winning 'Cities of Sleep' (2016), a documentary that takes us into the heady world of insurgent sleeper communities in Delhi, where securing a safe sleeping spot often becomes a life threatening question. The film follows Shakeel, a young man who has spent seven years sleeping rough, as he deals with the “sleep mafia”—goons who capitalise on the scarcity of safe sleeping spaces in the absence of government safety nets. We also meet Ranjeet, who runs a “sleep-cinema” community where over 400 homeless come and sleep through the day for a nominal price. A post-screening panel will initiate a dialogue on sleep, health and homelessness in London – where over 8000 people sleep rough - and Delhi – which has over two million homeless. How can cities with shared histories, yet divergent trajectories of urbanisation act as compelling entry points for comparison and intervention?
