We are very pleased that the 2016 Arthur Thomson Lecture, sponsored by the Arthur Thomson Trust, will be delivered by Dr Michael Mosley as part of the Medical School’s annual lecture series.  

Michael Mosley is a well-known British journalist, producer and television presenter who has worked for the BBC since 1985.  He is probably best known as a presenter of television programmes on biology and medicine and is currently presenting the 5-part series The Victorian Slum on BBC2.  Previous programmes have included: Trust Me I’m a Doctor; Infested! Living with Parasites; Blood and Guts: A History of Surgery; The Brain: A Secret History; Inside Porton Down: Britain’s Secret Weapons Research Facility.

This is the annual history of medicine lecture in our programme of eponymous lectures and will be followed by a reception in the Medical School Atrium.
