Hull York Medical School to showcase research success at annual Allam Lecture

10 January 2019

Academics, health professionals and members of the public will come together at the prestigious annual event

On 29 March 2019, Hull York Medical School will open the doors of the Allam Medical Building at the University of Hull to showcase some of the groundbreaking medical and biomedical research being carried out at undergraduate and postgraduate level by the school's cross-disciplinary research community.

Guests will range from academics and researchers to members of the public interested in learning more about the exciting research taking place on their doorstep – and how this work is impacting on people’s lives at a local, regional and national level.

This year’s keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Keir Lewis, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at Swansea University and a Consultant Physician and Director of Research & Development in Hywel Dda University Health Board, Wales. Professor Lewis will provide a lively and fascinating insight into smoking cessation and tobacco control through the ages, drawing on his own experience as a practising pulmonologist and lead researcher on a range of multi-million pound programmes.

The free-to-attend event will take place within the prestigious Allam Medical Building, a cutting-edge teaching facility at the heart of the University of Hull's £28m health campus, which was opened by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in October 2017. It is co-ordinated through the office of Professor Alyn Morice, Castle Hill Hospital, Hull York Medical School, and sponsored by Dr Assem and Mrs Fatima Allam.
