Can we survive the 21st Century?


Professor Lord Robert Winston will deliver the inaugural Beardmore Lecture which poses the challenge “Can we survive the 21st Century”.


The Lecture is part of a series of events which mark the Golden Jubilee National Hospital’s 10th anniversary as a national resource for the NHS in Scotland and underlines our commitment to research, innovation and scientific debate.


The Lecture, which takes place on Monday 26 November, will be hosted by Dr Heather Reid OBE, herself a well known physicist.


Chair of the Golden Jubilee, Jeane Freeman, commented: “The Golden Jubilee is a centre of high quality clinical care, ground breaking research and innovative ideas.  For the first, in what will be the annual Beardmore Lecture series, we have brought together clinicians, academics, government representatives and scientists to discuss and debate some of the central challenges of our times.


“We want to ensure that we are at the forefront of research and innovation, that our research spans bench to bedside and provides real benefits for the treatment and health improvement of this and future generations.


“It is our great privilege that Professor Lord Winston, one of the world’s top scientists, has agreed to deliver our first Beardmore Lecture and I know he will stimulate debate and discussion and challenge us to think carefully around issues of medical research and healthcare.”

The Inaugural Beardmore Lecture will be broadcast live over the internet at 6.30pm on Monday 26 November 2012 from our website
