We are delighted to present the inaugural lecture of Professor Andrew Ewer, Professor of Neonatal Medicine in the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research. The event will take place in the Leonard Deacon Lecture Theatre, Medical School Building on Wednesday 3 May from 4.30 - 5.30, followed by a short drinks reception.


This lecture will be an overview of Professor Ewer’s research career with particular emphasis on his work with Pulse oximetry screening for heart defects (and other conditions) in newborn babies. This has involved primary research, systematic reviews, national feasibility studies and international collaborations in an attempt to ensure as many babies worldwide receive this potentially life-saving test.

This lecture is open to all. Pre-registration is not required.
