Event description

Description

David Heymann is currently professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; head of the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House, London; and former chairman of Public Health England, UK. Previously he was the World Health Organization's assistant director-general for Health Security and Environment, and representative of the director-general for polio eradication.

In this talk, 'Global Infectious Diseases: Priorities for action’, David will bring to life the major current infectious disease priorities for the developed and the developing world, highlighting major research gaps that need addressing. He will also show tangible examples of where British innovation has had an impact in low and middle income countries, such as in recent outbreaks of MERS and Ebola.

Join us from 5.30pm to experience a showcase of the latest technology being used to fight infectious diseases. The doors to the theatre will open at approximately 6:30pm, with a prompt start at 7:00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk. Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
