About the series

The highly successful Cardiff University Science in Health Public Lecture Series began in 2002. These free lectures, organised by Cardiff University’s School of Medicine, attract a diverse audience of interested individuals including the public, secondary school pupils and professionals. The series has the dual aims of opening up areas of concern in health care and to present new research on health issues to the public.

The lectures are held on Thursday evenings, running from October to June, usually in the large Chemistry Lecture Theatre of the University Main Building. The talks commence at 19:00.

The lectures are free and no booking is required. All are welcome – including senior school pupils interested in a career in healthcare.

A recent initiative has been to provide local Yr 12 and 13 pupils with the opportunity of meeting with the speaker prior to the lecture. If you are a Yr12/13 pupil and wish to meet with one of the forthcoming speakers please contact Karen Edwards, School of Medicine at
