William Harvey Day will showcase some of the best cutting edge research currently underway in Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and in our partner NHS Trusts. There will be nine presentations by School researchers, as well as three science “hot topics” presented by leading researchers who have recently joined the School, and three guest lectures.

We are delighted that these will be given by Professor Peter Donnelly, Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Professor Philippe Sansonetti from the Institut Pasteur, Paris and Dr Chris Smith, creator and host of the BBC talk show, The Naked Scientists.

The day will conclude with the Barts and The London NHS Trust’s traditional annual St Luke’s-tide Service in the church of St Bartholomew the Great and a subscription dinner at the Museum of London.
