On Friday 10 March 2023, the Department hosted Professor Sir Chris Whitty KCB FMedSci to deliver "Thinking through epidemics" in honour of our former Waynflete Professor of Physiology and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Sir Charles Sherrington.
Head of Department Professor David Paterson said: "We were delighted to welcome back one of our own former students, Professor Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England, to deliver this years’ Sherrington Public Understanding of Science Prize lecture. Chris gave a gripping account on the history of pandemics leading to five key strategic principles that are needed to successfully fight a pandemic. The medical students and academics present were enthralled by this erudite lecture".
