The first four days will include a mix of plenary lectures, short courses and discussion meetings on topics suggested by participants.  These will be run as a sequence of parallel sessions, allowing each participant to pick their own programme to match their interests and requirements. The fifth day will be a Schools Engagement Event with senior pupils from two local secondary schools.

Plenary speakers include:

  • Professor Mark Lawler (HDR UK and Queen’s University Belfast). Mark is Dean of Education and Professor in the Centre for Cancer research and Cell Biology
  • Dr Madeleine Thomson (Columbia University, New York). Madeleine leads the Health and Climate programme at Columbia’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society
  • Professor Cathie Sudlow (HDR UK and University of Edinburgh). Cathie heads the Centre for Medical Informatics and holds a personal chair in Neurology and Clinical Epidemiology
